England news: Paul Collingwood's five best moments as a player and coach

Paul Collingwood will take over as England coach on an interim basis during their upcoming tour of the West Indies.

Former England all-rounder Paul Collingwood will take charge of England as interim boss for their upcoming Test tour of the West Indies next month.

Planet Sport has taken a look at some of the standout moments from his career as a player and a coach.

At the double in Australia

During the 2006 Ashes Collingwood became just the third Englishman to score a double century in Australia in the second Test in Adelaide.

Although the hosts went on to win the match by six wickets, and went on to complete a 5-0 series whitewash, Collingwood scored 206 runs in 392 balls in the first innings, with Kevin Pietersen scoring 158 alongside him.

World T20 champions

Collingwood led England to their first global championship success in 2010 as they were crowned World T20 champions in the Caribbean, beating Australia by seven wickets in the final.

Set a target of 147, Craig Kieswetter's 63 and 47 from Kevin Pietersen took England to the brink of victory, which Collingwood himself sealed with 18 balls remaining.

Service at Durham

Collingwood made 304 first-class appearances in 23 years at Durham, amassing 16,844 runs and taking 164 wickets.

He took over as captain from Phil Mustard in 2012, after the end of his Test and one-day international career, and won the County Championship title in 2013.

The all-rounder also led Durham to victory in the 2014 Royal London One-Day Cup, beating Warwickshire by three wickets in the final.

2010/11 Ashes and retirement

Collingwood played all five Tests in England's 3-1 Ashes win in 2010/11, their first series win in Australia in 24 years.

Despite the team's success, however, Collingwood struggled with the bat, making just 83 runs in six innings at an average of 13.83. He retired from Test cricket at the end of the series.

Coaching with England

Collingwood turned his attention to coaching even before retiring from all forms of cricket as a player in 2018 and was part of the Scotland coaching team at the 2015 World Cup.

He steps into the England interim head coach role having served as assistant coach under the departed Chris Silverwood and taken charge of the team for their T20 tour of the Caribbean last month, which ended in a 3-2 series defeat.
