England Appoint Chris Silverwood as Men's Head Coach


Chris Silverwood has been appointed as England men's head coach.

The 44-year-old Silverwood was promoted from the role of bowling coach to head coach across all formats, succeeding Trevor Bayliss, who left the post at the end of the 2019 season.

Silverwood emerged as the frontrunner for the job last week after Alec Stewart pulled out of the running and Gary Kirsten was also interviewed.

Silverwood impressed the ECB's selection panel, comprising Chief Executive Officer Tom Harrison, Managing Director of England's Men's Cricket Ashley Giles and Head of Coach Development John Neal, through a strong interview and his intimate knowledge of the current set-up and systems.
