Summary

  • England are almost certain to have one coach in charge of their Test, one-day international and Twenty20 teams after Trevor Bayliss completes his stint later this year, director of cricket Ashley Giles has said.
  • “I’m about 99.9 percent sure that I want one man to do that job in the future,” the former England spinner told BBC’s Test Match Special podcast.
  • “Giles, who took over from former Test captain Andrew Strauss in December, did not rule out the possibility of a home-grown coach replacing Australian Bayliss.
  • It’s a pretty sorry state of affairs for our coach development department,” added Giles, who coached England’s limited-overs sides between 2012 and 2014.
  • England, who host the 50-overs World Cup starting in May, are on tour of the West Indies where they lost the three-match Test series 2-1 before winning the first of five ODIs.
