Brendon McCullum Likely To Become England New Test Coach 2022
The ECB wants Brendon McCullum as the England New Test coach 2022. In the beginning, the English wanted a white ball coach. McCullum has had success in his cricket career by calling it white. He is also working as the coach of Kolkata Knight Riders. Even though he did not win the title, he took the team to the final once.
But white ball captain Eoin Morgan has favored McCullum as red ball coach. A big issue in that case is the current aggressive mentality of the current captain Stokes and McCallum. Which, of course, made the video an overnight sensation.
The issue of appointing an England coach has been under discussion for several days now. England are currently going through a difficult time in national team cricket. Especially in Test cricket, the team is in a very fragile position. There has already been a major overhaul of the official and coaching staff in charge of the team. The rest, including head coach Silverwood, have resigned. Managing Director Ashley Giles has also resigned. Joe Root has just stepped down from the leadership.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has appointed Robert Key as its new managing director. Ben Stokes has been named England’s new Test captain. However, the English have not yet been able to resolve the issue of hiring a coach. It is already known that he has thought of a new coach for red ball and white ball. That means separate coaches for Test cricket and two coaches for limited overs ODIs and T20s.
McCullum also has a good relationship with the English captain. Morgan worked with the New Zealand star in Kolkata. And after the failure of the 2015 World Cup, Morgan also took McCullum’s advice to build the England team. Then in 2019, England became the champion for the first time.
The ECB has considered this aspect. In addition to the success of the white ball, McCullum has played more than 100 Test matches. Was the captain. All in all, McCullum, now 40, is in the running to become England’s red ball coach. The British media is reporting a strong possibility in this regard.
England have a three-match Test series against New Zealand in early June. The ECB wants to appoint a coach before this series. If McCullum becomes the coach, he will start his first job against his country. He is currently busy with IPL.
