Summary

  • ENGLAND coach Trevor Bayliss will step down when his contract ends in 2019, he announced Tuesday at the end of a troubled Ashes Test tour of Australia.
  • The 55-year-old Australian, who was appointed in 2015 to succeed the sacked Peter Moores, said by then it would be time for a fresh approach.

  • Since former Sri Lanka coach Bayliss took over from Moores, England’s Test results have been mixed, losing 18 and winning 15.
  • His decision follows England’s chastening 4-0 Ashes defeat, with Australia recording four comprehensive wins — including two innings victories and a 10-wicket triumph.
