Australian women’s cricket mentor Matthew Mott becomes ODI and T20 men’s coach in England

The Australian women’s cricket team is looking for a new coach. Matthew Mott accepts an offer to manage the England men’s white ball team.

Mott will join Brendon McCullum in a bid to turn around England’s faltering fortunes after the former New Zealand star was appointed Tests coach last week.

His current assistant and former all-around star Shelley Nitschke will coach Australia for a tri-series in Northern Ireland and the Commonwealth Games campaign in Birmingham.

Mott has been coaching Australia since 2015, with the team almost unstoppable since their unexpected elimination in the semi-finals of the 2017 ODI World Cup.

Australia enjoyed an unprecedented period ranked number one in the T20 and 50+ formats and also set a new world record by winning 26 consecutive ODIs.
