Bayliss to step down as England coach next year

  Bayliss to step down as England coach next year Trevor Bayliss will step down as England coach when his contract expires after the home Ashes series in 2019, the Australian said on Tuesday. Bayliss took the job in 2015, leading England to a home series win over Australia and to the 2016 World Twenty20 final, but he informed England cricket director Andrew Strauss a year ago that he was planning to step down."I told Andrew Strauss probably 12 months ago that September 2019 is when I'm contracted to and that would see me out," Bayliss said after England's 4-0 Ashes defeat in Australia."I've never been anywhere any more than four or five years.

Chris Lynn ’s injury curse has struck once again, as the hard-hitting Australian batsman has been ruled out of Australia ’ s upcoming One - Day International series against England and the remainder of the Big Bash League.

Aggressive Australian batsman, Chris Lynn ’s luck seems to be against him as he suffers another injury setback on Monday with him getting ruled out of Australia ’ s squad for their ODI series against England .

Batting brute Chris Lynn is set to miss Australia's one-day campaign against England, with Glenn Maxwell likely to be in the mix for a recall.

Lynn hurt his calf while fielding for the Brisbane Heat on Friday night and was sent for scans on Saturday. It's understood the strain is minor but will be enough to keep him out of the five-match series against the tourists, beginning on Sunday at the MCG.

Cricket Australia is expected to release a statement on Monday.

Lynn had been a controversial selection in the 14-man squad because he still cannot throw properly after shoulder surgery. His elevation came at the expense of Maxwell, with selection chairman Trevor Hohns pointing out the Melbourne Star had only averaged 22 in his past 20 matches.

Renshaw holds hope for South Africa series

  Renshaw holds hope for South Africa series Fringe Australian Test opener Matt Renshaw remains hopeful he will be selected for the four-Test series against South Africa.Renshaw will captain a Cricket Australia XI against England at Sydney's Drummoyne Oval on Thursday, in what will be his first game outside of grade cricket in more than a month due to the Big Bash.

Many Australian Cricket pundits tipped Glenn Maxwell to replace injured Chris Lynn in Australia ’ s ODI Squad for the home series against England but selectors threw a big surprise as Cameron White was included in the setup.

One of the most dominant batsmen in Twenty20 cricket when fit, Lynn was forced to pull out of Australia ' s recent one - day international series against England with a calf injury. Chris Lynn is helped from the field after dislocating his shoulder.

Maxwell's demotion sparked skipper Steve Smith to declare the Victorian needed to train smarter, eschewing flair in the nets for a more traditional technique.

Heat captain Brendon McCullum said on Sunday night that Lynn, who has also had a hamstring issue, should not have been selected for the one-day series.

"Personally, I would have liked to have seen him being kept until the T20s," McCullum told Channel 10.

"Then they can introduce him and get him back into the fold. But you'd never turn down the opportunity to play for his country and I know 'Lynny' was very excited about it."

Lynn has played only the one ODI but is one of the BBL's premier sluggers.
