England's back room has undergone yet another change with reports that spin coach Mushtaq Ahmed has been sacked, though pace coach David Saker has retained his job until 2015.

With Graham Gooch losing his job as batting coach, Ashley Giles making way for Peter Moores as head coach, and Paul Farbrace hired as assistant coach, the staff roster has undergone big refurbishments in recent weeks.

The former spinner has been with England since 2008, appointed by Moores ironically enough, but England now find themselves without a front line spinner, since Graeme Swann's retirement.

Ahmed is expected to be replaced by former England off-spinner Paul Such, according to the <i>Guardian</i>, leaving the Pakistan legend with room to possibly return to his national side's coaching set-up.
