Ashley Giles position as national team coach is increasingly becoming dicey after England were humiliated by the Netherlands in an inconsequential ICC World Twenty20 match in Chittagong on Monday. According to reports, the England and Wales Cricket Board has shortlisted Australian Trevor Bayliss for the head coach's job.

According to the Telegraph,, Bayliss, who is on the coaching staff of Indian Premier League team Kolkata Knight Riders, will be interviewed by the ECB to succeed Zimbabwean Andy Flower, who resigned as England's head coach after the Ashes whitewash.
