England boss Bayliss to leave when contract ends in 2019

Written by admin

Trevor Bayliss will step down as England coach when his contract expires at the end of the 2019 Ashes.

The 55-year-old, who was appointed in 2015, has just seen his side beaten 4-0 in Australia, but told England director of cricket Andrew Strauss of his plans a year ago.

“I’m contracted to September 2019 and that will see me out,” the Australian told BBC Sport.

“I’ve always felt that it’s time for a change around that four-year mark.”

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