England's new-coach Peter Moores says he is looking forward to meeting his partner Paul Farbrace as they plan to get to work quickly.

Peter Moores, who has had a major role to play in the appointment of Paul Farbrace is eager to meet him to get to work and start the "new era" in a successful fashion.

He said: "I was appointed in the job and was asked who do I like. Paul was one of the names against two or three others that came up. I thought about it, had a chat with Paul and it became pretty obvious that was going to be the right fit for me.

"He's got great international experience as an assistant coach and also as a head coach, so he's seen quite a lot.

"We get on well; we come from the same philosophy on the game, which is keeping things simple and getting out there and playing.

"I'm really looking forward to working with him and he'll be a great support."

The new English pair will also be staying with all the players for two days in Loughborough.

"There's not really much time to waste and I wouldn't want to anyway," the 51-year-old added. "The lads are going and other people are around so it's a good opportunity to be there.

"We're coaches; we want to get stuck in and see what's going on. You want to start moving things forward because there's a game coming up on May 9 so it's a quick turnaround."

Moores hinted he would encourage England to play no-fear cricket in a bid to get the team moving in the right direction after a disappointing winter.

"You make mistakes as you go along as a coach," Moores said. "Success gives you enthusiasm to go and make some more mistakes.

"If you don't push the edge of stuff, then you never make a mistake, but you are pretty safe and pretty bland.

"If you want to take a few risks now and then, sometimes it isn't always going to be perfect. You learn to balance that out a bit and have some fun."

Moores also talked about his stint with Lancashire, a side that has done well over time.

"It has been great fun. Obviously we have had some real highs and some lows," he said.

"I feel very privileged to have been part of what has been a huge period of change and evolution.

"In that time we have managed to win the first division, go down and win the second division.

"Mainly we have developed a lot of young Lancashire players who have come through and it is exciting for the club. Hopefully they will go on and have great careers and keep the club in a healthy state."
