England’s new Test Coach: Former New Zealand cricketer Brendon McCullum has been appointed as the head coach of the England men’s Test cricket team. Earlier it was reported that the deal related to this between ECB and McCullum has been finalised. Soon, an official announcement will be made to make Brendan the coach of England’s Test team. After this, the England and Wales Cricket Board announced this on Thursday. His appointment comes after England’s poor performance in the Test format. Apart from McCullum’s appointment as the Test Head Coach, there have been many changes in the team. The captain of the team has also been changed.
Have special coaching experience
Brendam McCullum has a lot of coaching experience, which is why the ECB has reposed faith in him. McCullum is currently the head coach of the IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders. The team is performing well under his coaching. Although this year the performance of the team has been average. KKR has played 12 matches this season and won 5. With 10 points, the team is at 7th position in the points table. McCullum will step down from his role as head coach of Kolkata Knight Riders at the end of the IPL.
Played 101 Tests for New Zealand
Brendam McCullum played 101 Tests for New Zealand between 2004 and 2016. In 2014, he scored 6453 runs in Tests with the highest score of 302 against India. During this he has scored 12 centuries and 31 half-centuries. He has never been a coach in Test cricket, having captained New Zealand in 31 Test matches before his retirement in 2013. At the same time, in 2020, he also coached Trinbago Knight Riders for the Caribbean Premier League title.
Root had given up the captaincy
Let us tell you that before this, Rob Key was appointed the managing director of the men’s team. After this, he handed over the command of the Test team to Ben Stokes. Earlier, Joe Root was the captain of the England Test team. But he left the captaincy due to continuous disappointing performance. Australia defeated England 4-0 in the Ashes series. After this defeat, Chris Silverwood decided to step down from the post of head coach. McCullum has now taken his place. The England team will now have separate coaches for the red and white balls.
