Bayliss calls for specialist T20 coach
England coach Trevor Bayliss has urged the England and Wales Cricket Board to consider hiring a specialist coach for their Twenty20 side, after they failed to make the final of the trans-Tasman T20I tri-series.
The England head coach has already confirmed he won’t seek an extension to his current contract which expires in September 2019.
“The short answer is probably ‘yes’,” Bayliss said when asked if a T20-specific coach should be installed before his departure.
“Eventually you will have specialist coaches as well (as players).
“That will obviously be a discussion with higher levels, with (ECB director of cricket) Andrew Strauss and people like that.
“If that was what they thought was the way to go ahead, I’d be all for it. If not, I am more than happy to keep going and work with these guys towards that next T20 World Cup.”
