England head coach Trevor Bayliss has said he will step down from his position regardless of how the team fares in the Cricket World Cup final against New Zealand on Sunday and the Ashes series against Australia in August and September.
"I have always been a believer that four or five years is long enough, whether you are doing well or not. It is time for a new voice for the boys, to hopefully take them to another level," Bayliss said.
The 56-year-old has been in charge of England since 2015 and led them to the top of the One Day International rankings last year. The Australian born has been instrumental in branding England’s cricket to a fearless and attacking approach.
