Trevor Bayliss’, who was appointed England’s head coach in the year 2015 after the team’s dismal performance in that year’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, contract as the head coach of England came to an end.
Ashes said that his time in charge will be remembered for the change of attitude that led to their maiden World Cup win at Lord’s.
In a statement, Bayliss said “A change of attitude was required. A change of the way we played the game. Looking back to the 2015 World Cup, England probably played the game in a little bit of an old-fashioned way, and my role was about bringing in players that were more attuned to playing the more modern style of game.
Further he said, “But it was about attitude as well, about the knowledge that whoever won that World Cup was going to have to play some bold cricket, and we stuck to our guns through those four years, and through some tough periods as well. That allowed us to have some tough conversations with the boys, but they stuck to what they believed in and in the way they played, even though over a period of time they learned how to adapt to situations.”
