Chris Silverwood was named England head coach Monday in place of Trevor Bayliss as the England and Wales Cricket Board opted against another overseas candidate to take the team forward.

British media reported last week that former India and South Africa coach Gary Kirsten had emerged as the leading contender, but Silverwood, the team's former bowling coach, was preferred.

Australian Bayliss departed last month after England's drawn home Ashes series against Australia having led the team for four years.

They struggled for consistency in Tests under his guidance, slipping to fourth in the world ranking, but enjoyed sustained success in one-day cricket, rising to the top of the ranking and winning their first 50-over World Cup title this year on home soil.

The 44-year-old Silverwood played six Tests and seven ODIs for England as a fast bowler during his playing career, the majority of which was spent with his native county Yorkshire.

He moved into coaching and in 2017 led Essex to their first County Championship title for 25 years before becoming England pace bowling coach.

Silverwood's first assignment will be England's tour of New Zealand on which they play five T20Is starting on Nov. 1 and two Tests, before they travel to South Africa.

Former England captain Nasser Hussain said Silverwood was a safe pair of hands, but that the job represented a big step up for him.
