Trevor Bayliss to stand down as England coach next year

Trevor Bayliss to stand down as England coach next year

Gateshead born Mark Stoneman has received the backing of England coach Trevor Bayliss ahead of England's upcoming Test series with New Zealand. Mark Wood coming back from injury will look to make an impact straight away, like he did when England faced South Africa and he picked up big wickets and bowled well at the death.

And given England's performance in last two years in coloured clothes and Australia's performance at home, the series could turn out to be much more exciting than the Ashes.

"I guess, at the end of the day, everybody knows where they stand, and it gives England almost two years to find a replacement".

Bayliss is under pressure for the underperformance of the Test team and its lack of progress on his watch. For all the positivity from the England & Wales Cricket Board about the overall vitality of the sport - chief executive Tom Harrison declared that the sport was "in extremely good shape" after the Ashes urn has been relinquished - and the reality that England have had the two most onerous tours in world cricket in consecutive winters, Bayliss's record as Test coach is abject.

Bayliss made it clear, however, that when England announce the Test party for New Zealand on Wednesday evening (UK time) he favours them having another chance to show their worth. "A new voice and a different approach reinvigorates things".

His decision will trigger speculation about a successor as England's management open their review of the failed Ashes series.

"In the first three Tests, Stoneman, Vince and Dawid Malan were the best performing batsmen".

England selectors have taken a hatchet to the squad that surrendered the Ashes 4-0 in Australia - and their selections have gone down like a lead balloon.




The experiment lasted for only two years with Flower the first of the coaches to depart before Giles followed suit and Hussain had a word of warning for England should they head down the route of split coaches again.

"I told Andrew Strauss probably 12 months ago that September 2019 I'm contracted to and that would see me out", Bayliss said. "It's probably a little bit technical but a lot of it is the mental side of it, knowing which balls to leave and when to attack and when not to".

Bayliss insists England did all they could to compete here.

It means he will be in charge for next year's home World Cup and Ashes - but will not take the team Down Under for the 2021-22 series.

"We knew what to expect when we came here, and that's the way it is out here".

"Personally, I love the Test cricket more than the white-ball cricket".

"Personally, I'd like to think and hope that it's someone from within our own game who takes over from Trevor", said Moxon, who is himself highly regarded as Yorkshire's director of cricket.

Back home in the summer of 2010-11 a shattering Ashes defeat that included three defeats by an innings still did not prevent the ODI series being won 6-1.
