Chris Silverwood appointed England’s head coach across formats

Chris Silverwood appointed as England’s head coach

Chris Silverwood replaced Trevor Bayliss to become England’s head coach across formats. Bayliss stepped down from the position after the Ashes this year.

Silverwood, the new England coach

With Silverwood, the other candidates in the contest for the high profile role were Alec Stewart, Gary Kirsten, and Graham Ford. Silverwood, the team’s fast bowling coach since 2017, was finally picked. Silverwood helped Essex to their first Championship in 25 years in 2017. The ECB director Ashley Giles announced the news, “We are delighted to confirm Chris as England men’s head coach. We have gone through a thorough process and looked at all the options that were available to us. Chris was the standout candidate.”

Giles also talked about Silverwood’s performance as a coach. He also informed how Silverwood has a clear understanding and strategy for all formats of cricket in his interview. “Chris demonstrated in his interview a clear understanding and strategy of how both the red and white ball teams need to evolve. He has some detailed thoughts on what it will take to win the Ashes in Australia and win major ICC white-ball tournaments.”

The strategy explained

The director also mentioned about Essex’s County title in 2017 which certainly certifies about Silverwood’s highest quality. “His relationships with the first-class game, in particular, county coaches and Directors of Cricket, will be invaluable. Having led Essex to the County Championship title in 2017, his legacy is very much in evidence this campaign, which saw Essex win the domestic double of the Specsavers County Championship and the Vitality Blast.”

Silverwood’s first assignment will be the tour of New Zealand next month. England will play two Tests and five T20Is on the Kiwi soil. Silverwood who sounded very excited about this upcoming venture said the tremendous amount of talent needs to be nurtured now. “The hard work starts now, and I am confident we can make a positive impact during our winter tours of New Zealand and South Africa.”
