England coach Trevor Bayliss will step down when his contract ends in 2019, he announced Tuesday at the end of a troubled Ashes Test tour of Australia.

The last time that England's one-day cricketers were at the Sydney Cricket Ground, the curtain was being drawn on an terrible World Cup campaign with a damp dead-rubber win over Afghanistan.

"We had that discussion a few days ago, I suggested to him that he shouldn't play, that he should have a break".

Bayliss took over as England coach in the summer of 2015, and while he has overseen a transformation in the team's limited-overs fortunes, England have not won either of the last two global trophies, and have lost more Test matches than they have won.

Buttler, who played in the Big Bash League for Sydney Thunders, believes the ODI series to be a new opportunity and players have moved on from the Test defeat.

"I think someone coming for the first time as captain, even with experience, it's going to be a hard tour to be on", Bayliss said. "I've got no problem working towards a long-term goal even if I'm not going to be there", he said.

"They are aware that it's about performance and scoring enough runs".

"How you juggle that and the planning for four years' time is a hard one".

They were outclassed in every facet of the game by Australia in the Test arena, but England are expected to prove much tougher opponents in this month's five-match one-day worldwide series. Vince made attractive starts before falling to predictable modes of dismissal while Stoneman went from battling to embattled.

"But I think the guys will dust themselves down".

Sandwiched between them was a 75-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, the eighth-longest touchdown run in Rose Bowl history. On third and 2 from the 17 Georgia All-America linebacker Roquan Smith nailed Jordan Smallwood a yard short of the first down.

"What it did not have was much hard-fought nor memorable cricket as Australia's superiority in their own conditions proved every bit as decisive as those of us who feared the worst from the start imagined". "If you bring three or four young blokes into the team it will be a slower process as they learn what the worldwide game is about", he said.

"Liam has been a player that we have been impressed with for quite some time, having performed well in the county system with Lancashire and over the past couple of years with the England Lions", England selector James Whitaker said.

Vince averaged 26.88 batting at number three in the Ashes and opener Stoneman averaged 25.77.

That process will get under way sooner rather than later, but with a warning attached not to expect instant results.

And, despite the call for a change of playing personnel, struggling batsmen Mark Stoneman and James Vince have been picked for the two-Test series in New Zealand in March and April.

Hosmer has also been known as a great clubhouse player as well, which why the potential move to re-sign him is so intriguing. In a rather cold offseason hot stove, Hosmer's deal would be the highest contract given to a free agent this season.

"But the important thing is that young coaches in this country can see that there's an opportunity to progress, and that if they do well and perform and show their credentials, that there's a chance they can get into global cricket".
