Australian Trevor Bayliss is the new England coach, and will take charge of the team for the first time in this summer’s Investec Ashes.

Former Sri Lanka and current New South Wales coach Bayliss has leapfrogged initial front-runner, and compatriot Jason Gillespie, to replace the sacked Peter Moores.

His appointment was confirmed in an England and Wales Cricket Board statement on Tuesday afternoon, in which the governing body’s director Andrew Strauss praised the 52-year-old’s “outstanding record as a coach” and described Bayliss’ “expertise in the shorter forms of the game” as “vital” – with a Champions Trophy and then World Cup set to be played in this country in the next four years.
