England national team coach Trevor Bayliss urged for removing T20 cricket from international schedules to ease the burden of cricketers.
As quoted by Sky Sports, Bayliss said, “I haven’t changed my opinion – I wouldn’t play T20 international cricket.”
“If you want to play a World Cup every four years or so then maybe get the international teams to play six months before, but I’d just let the franchises play.
“I think [separate T20 coaches] is definitely the way it’s heading if we continue to put in so many games. There will be a blow-out with coaches,” he said.
England made a disappointed exit from the Trans – Tasman Tri series despite trashing New Zealand in a nail biting affair.
Bayliss, therefore, said, “It is quite obvious that [Australia’s] players have all come out of two months of T20 cricket, whereas both New Zealand and England have been playing other forms or, as is the case for some of our guys, sitting at home.”
“That was quite evident in the way that they played – they were up to speed with the T20 game.
