London, May 18 The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) on Wednesday announced that it has appointed Matthew Mott as the England Men’s White-Ball Head Coach.
The 48-year-old has signed a four-year agreement and is expected to be in place for England’s three-match ODI series against The Netherlands in Amsterdam next month.
The ECB’s selection panel of Chief Executive Officer Tom Harrison, Managing Director of England’s Men’s Cricket Rob Key, Strategic Adviser Andrew Strauss and Performance Director Mo Bobat unanimously agreed on Mott, following a competitive interview process.
Mott has led the Australian Women’s Team since 2015 and during his seven years in charge has overseen one of the world’s best winning records across international sport.
Under his leadership, Australia women have won consecutive ICC T20 World Cups, this year’s ICC Women’s 50-Over World Cup and are undefeated in four Ashes series.
Mott has also helped Australia win 26 consecutive one-day internationals, a record in either the men’s or women’s game.
