Ashley Giles is confident there will be one coach overseeing Test, ODI and T20 matters for England after Trevor Bayliss steps down.
Bayliss will leave his role after the 2019 Ashes series following four years in the position.
Fast bowling coach Chris Silverwood is regarded as the favourite to take over from Bayliss and has been backed by Giles, who is serving as managing director of England men’s cricket.
Giles has made it clear he wants to hire someone who has an understanding of the culture and ethos of the team, while also saying that he would have three assistants to the coach, rather than splitting people over each format of the game.
“I think consistency of communication is really important,” he said.
“I’m about 99.9 per cent sure that I want one man to do that job in the future.
“The last thing we want is a football-style mentality where a guy comes in, brings his whole backroom staff with him, and the whole structure falls apart.”
