England white ball coach: Former Australian women’s coach Matthew Mott has been appointed as the England men’s white-ball head coach. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced this on Wednesday. Mott, 48, has signed a four-year deal with the ECB. Mott will join the team ahead of England’s three-match ODI series against the Netherlands in Amsterdam next month.
The selection panel consisting of ECB CEO Tom Harrison, England’s men’s cricket MD Rob Key, strategic advisor Andrew Strauss and performance director Mo Bobat unanimously agreed to Mott after an interview process. After the appointment, Mott said, “I am delighted to accept the opportunity to play this white-ball role with England.”
Let us tell you that Mott was handling the responsibility of the coach of the Australian women’s team since 2015. He helped Australia win many big tournaments during his 7-year tenure. Under her coaching, the Women’s Australia team has consistently won the ICC T20 World Cup, this year’s ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup. Apart from this, four Ashes series are in his name. Mott has also helped Australia win 26 consecutive One Day Internationals, a record in either the men’s or women’s game.
Mott previously served as the head coach of New South Wales. Under his coaching, the team won the Champions League T20 tournament in 2009. After this he trained Glamorgan. Apart from this, he was also associated with Ireland as a consultant during the 2015 ICC Men’s World Cup. There are now separate coaches for red and white ball in England. The head coach of the Test team will be Brendon McCullum and the head coat of the ODI and T20 team will be Matthew Mott.
Mott said the idea of a different coach and the opportunity to work with Brendon McCullum in his red-ball role is an opportunity I’m incredibly excited about. “I definitely provide the right balance for my family as we embark on this exciting journey,” he said. It was always going to take something special to leave the role I’ve loved for the past seven years with the Australian women’s team. However, I really believe the time is right to play a role in helping England men’s ODIs and T20s.”
