Stuart Broad's limited overs career not over - Trevor Bayliss
Stuart Broad's limited overs career not over - Trevor Bayliss

Ever since Trevor Bayliss took over as the head coach of England, their fortunes have turned around and now, England do represent a champion side. Before Bayliss’ tenure, the English lacked the zeal and aggression along with the hunger to succeed. England’s success is evident from their improved limited overs performances and their recent qualification for the semi-finals of the ICC World T20 in India.

Former England pacer Allan Mullally heaped praises on Bayliss for his role with England and improving the team. “I played under Duncan Fletcher and he was a coach that always wanted the attention,” Mullally said. “When things were going well, Fletcher wanted to be in front of the cameras. You don’t see that with Bayliss. He is low-key and just lets the team go. “England has always had talent but we played a conservative brand of cricket, even back when I was part of the team. Bayliss has taken the shackles off and instilled self-belief.”

“No one thought England could win the Ashes but they did, and they have surprised in this World T20,” Mullally told Cricbuzz in an interview. “I think a lot of the success for the stunning turnaround is due to Bayliss, who has been superb. Peter Moores was a shambles but Bayliss has picked up the pieces and implemented a much more attacking style.”

The former left-arm pacer, in particular, praised England’s bowling for adapting well to Indian conditions. “The attack has taken me by surprise and they have done really well,” he said. “Indian pitches are always hard for pacemen but the English quicks have done well in varying their length. Stokes, in particular, has been really good at the death with his yorkers.”
