CRICKET: Head Coach Silverwood Leaves England Role

Head coach Chris Silverwood has followed director of cricket Ashley Giles in leaving the England men’s team following the heavy Ashes defeat.

The 4-0 loss in Australia came part of a wider run that has seen England win only one of their past 14 Tests.

Silverwood, 46, was appointed in 2019 by Giles, who stood down on Wednesday.

Sir Andrew Strauss has temporarily taken over from Giles and will appoint an interim coach for the tour of West Indies in March.

A squad for the three-Test series is due to be named next week.

Silverwood, a former fast bowler who played six Tests for England, said: “It’s been an absolute honour to be England head coach and I’m extremely proud to have worked alongside our players and staff.

“I leave with fond memories and I am now looking forward to spending some quality time at home with my family and embracing the next chapter.”
