England's next coach

This may seem early to discuss seeing as Bayliss will have the job for the big events of 2019 - but we know when he's going, so you would hope England are already planning ahead on who his replacement(s) will be.

When was the last time a coach saw out their contract, rather than finishing early? It didn't happen with Fletcher or Flower. Definitely not with Moores (twice) or Giles. Has it ever?

It should mean that the candidate can be identified, announced and settled in before the end of Bayliss' tenure. But who? The stand-out candidate for me, as it has been for a while, is Jason Gillespie, if he wants the job.

Yes Dizzy is the obvious choice. He may end up with the choice of either England or Australia depending on how this summer goes. The ECB like appointing from within themselves so I wouldn't rule out Collingwood as they seem to have been easing him into the role for a while.

Hi Rey, good to see you on here.

Sharky, I'm not sure Colly will be that soon in taking on the England role. I know he's been coaching in the winter, but he's only just retired from playing first class cricket. I'm sure that they'd want him to bed in a little more before he does that.

Dizzy sounds a great choice in theory but what I've heard about this is that I am not sure he likes the idea of touring around the world for such a great chunk of the year. Him doing his franchise work means he gets quite a lot of time at home.

yes that's my understanding re Gillespie - quite likes his current workload. Having said that, I would have thought that he would find it more difficult to turn down the Aussie job - and guess an abject World cup and then Ashes might lead to changes in the Aussie camp

I like Mickey Arthur. We could end up with Lehmann.
