Chris Silverwood appointed as England’s head coach
England’s former head coach Trevor Bayliss stepped down from his position at the end of the home summer season for England. He was a proud member of England’s World Cup-winning support staff panel.
Replacing Trevor Bayliss, Chris Silverwood has been appointed as the new head coach by England Cricket Board. Silverwood took over as England fast bowling coach under Trevor Bayliss early last year and it was announced on Monday he is the man to succeed the Australian.
On his new role with England cricket, “I am thrilled and honored to be appointed England head coach,” Silverwood said. “I am excited to get started and build teams that the whole game can be proud of.
There is a tremendous amount of talent coming through, and there is enormous potential for growth. The hard work starts now, and I am confident we can make a positive impact during our winter tours of New Zealand and South Africa.”
“We are delighted to confirm Chris as England men’s head coach,” said Giles, ECB’s director of men’s cricket. “We have gone through a thorough process and looked at all the options that were available to us. Chris was the standout candidate.
I believe he is what we need to take our international teams forward. He is somebody we know well, but it is his intimate understanding of our structures and systems and his close relationships with Test captain Joe Root and white-ball captain Eoin Morgan that will help us develop our plans for the next few years.”
