After all, Australia will be the defending champions in next year's World Cup, and to defend that crown they'll need to build a team that could pull off the feat a second time.

England's one day side have gone up the rankings since Trevor Bayliss took charge as coach.

Despite this, England coach Bayliss has given his backing to the former Durham batsman and teammate Vince, telling Sky Sports: "It gets down to when is the time to move on and personally I think people like Stoneman and Vince probably get another couple of games to show us what they've got".

England selectors said he was in the frame "though his involvement remains subject to any relevant legal or disciplinary developments in relation to the incident in Bristol in September".

The current lot all finished with 20 or more wickets in the series to take 87 in total, while England's bowlers only managed 55.

James Vince has hit out at the Australian public for being ungracious in victory.

Whether Bayliss has improved England in the Test arena at all is questionable, but there's no doubts they have come on leaps and bounds in limited-overs cricket, reaching the final of 2016's World Twenty20 and semis in the 2017 Champions Trophy.

England, who were humiliated in the recently-concluded Ashes series, getting drubbed 0-4 by hosts Australia, will take on the Baggy Greens in five upcoming One Day internationals.

Bayliss will oversee a transition in the Test squad and lay the foundations alongside skipper Joe Root for next year's Ashes home series and the tour of Australia in 2021-22.

Mourinho losing his memory, claims Conte
The former Inter Coach hit back again last night, noting he "will never be suspended for match-fixing". Chelsea manager further continued his rant saying, "You (Jose Mourniho) show you are a little man".

He has since seen an improvement, but still believes the furore around the off-field problems created one of the most hard tours of his career. I've got no problem working towards a long-term goal even if I'm not going to be there'.

"It certainly made it a challenge earlier in the tour, but you look back now and, apart from that and the result, it's been an enjoyable Ashes contest".

However, despite his side losing the urn to the Aussies, Vince believes the English public have a better understanding of how to celebrate success.

England's winless run away from home is part of a longer-term problem, with just one victorious series overseas since 2012. They have been badly beaten and bruised in the Ashes 2017-18.

'Wickets that conducive to that type of bowling would help, but that won't happen over the next six months, ' said Bayliss.

"That could be a risk", he said.


"There are split captains and if you have split coaches the argument is that it gives more energy to each of the teams."

". That would be the best scenario.

But Gary Ballance, Jake Ball and Tom Curran, who were all part of the Australia Test squad, miss out.

"It might be, home or away, you chop and change a little bit". You might blood a young fast bowler in South Africa, or a young spinner in the subcontinent.
