Trevor Bayliss to stand down as England coach next year

Trevor Bayliss has announced he will step down as England head coach after next year's Ashes series - but some fans and critics want to see him leave the position now after the disastrous winter tour of Australia.

"Personally, I'd like to think and hope that it's someone from within our own game who takes over from Trevor", said Moxon, who is himself highly regarded as Yorkshire's director of cricket. Whether you're going well or not I've always felt that roundabout, that four-year mark is the time to change. "I've never been anywhere any more than four of five years". It would not be the first time England have approached a New Zealand tour with calls for experimentation, but a challenging Kiwi attack lies in wait.

England will host Pakistan for a Test series before Australia visit for a limited overs affair. For so long England were criticised for doing the exact opposite, and regarding cricket's World Cup as a second-class citizen compared to marquee Test series.

"I've got no problem working towards a long-term goal even if I'm not going to be there", he said.

"How you juggle that and the planning for four years' time is a hard one".

Neither Vince nor Stoneman escaped the general condemnation as England lost the Ashes series 4-0. The ability to bat for a day - we've seen it in the Ashes, we've seen it with Yorkshire, we've seen it throughout the country, there aren't many batsmen now who have that capability to bat for a day, and it's down to this desire to be very good at T20 cricket because that's where all the money is, and there's this desire now to dominate the bowler. "I think the guys will move on pretty quickly and park that disappointment".

"He really looks after people and gives them confidence".

"We've known for a couple of years that we have been three or four performing players short of a very, very good team".

"Malan has probably done enough, he's probably cemented one of those spots we were after".

[James] Vince and [Mark] Stoneman will be disappointed that they weren't able to capitalise.

"If an away Ashes series is the Holy Grail in English cricket, we have to get the right sort of younger players into the squad - even if it means losing some games along the way".

"But the important thing is that young coaches in this country can see that there's an opportunity to progress, and that if they do well and perform and show their credentials, that there's a chance they can get into worldwide cricket".

The home side ruthlessly finished off England in Sydney on Monday to record their fourth comprehensive win of a one-sided series - including two innings victories and a 10-wicket win.Several England players and coaches have repeatedly stressed in recent weeks that the main difference between the sides is that Australia have seized the crucial moments across the series.
