Ashes: Trevor Bayliss to step down as England coach in 2019

Ashes: Trevor Bayliss to step down as England coach in 2019

'We were outplayed by a good team playing in their home conditions.

England have not won an away Test in 11 matches and will next face New Zealand twice in March.

Bayliss took over as England coach in the summer of 2015, and while he has overseen a transformation in the team's limited-overs fortunes, England have not won either of the last two global trophies, and have lost more Test matches than they have won. After all, Australia will be the defending champions in next year's World Cup, and to defend that crown they'll need to build a team that could pull off the feat a second time.

"We had that discussion a few days ago, I suggested to him that he shouldn't play, that he should have a break".

He added: "A new voice and a different approach reinvigorates things".

"I'm happy to carry on doing all three formats".

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

"If we do go down the track in New Zealand, or in the summer, of picking some new young batters, everyone at home in the United Kingdom has got to expect that the results might not be quite what we would like".

There was much outcry before the series over the selections of wicketkeeper Tim Paine and batsman Shaun Marsh, who was recalled to the Test side for an eighth time. "If that was to occur and we're not as successful as we'd like to be because we're blooding some young players, we have to take that on the chin and hopefully everyone realises that we're heading in a certain direction".

MARTYN MOXON believes a young English coach should replace Trevor Bayliss when the Australian stands down in 2019.

Kenyatta's discussion with Zuma will focus on bridging the balance of trade which is now highly in favor of South Africa. She said the commission's goal was to complete her report, and it should deal first with details that had arisen in it.

His contract takes him up to the end of the 2019 Ashes series when Australia coach Darren Lehmann also plans to call it quits.

Bayliss insists England did all they could to compete here.

CHRIS SILVERWOOD - JUST named England's fast-bowling coach, unlikely to make a step up so soon but has strong credentials.

Expect Alex Hales to open the batting opposite Jonny Bairstow, with Jason Roy to miss out.

"It also gives more time for the coaches to go away and have a look at players and what's potentially going right or wrong".

England selectors said he was in the frame "though his involvement remains subject to any relevant legal or disciplinary developments in relation to the incident in Bristol in September".

Mark Stoneman trudges off the field after another disappointing innings in Australia.

As for Stoneman, Bayliss rejected suggestions that his confidence - and indeed footwork - suffered from the aftershock of being struck on the helmet by Josh Hazlewood during the third Test in Perth.

But Boycott told BBC Radio 5 Live that the series result was a fair reflection of the gap between the two teams, with most of the standout performances coming from the home side."I think it's a little false by a number of the England players to say at times they were quite close and that there were moments here and there".
