England announce Michael Hussey and David Saker as part of the coaching team for the ICC World T20 2022

The next Twenty20 World Cup will be overseen by Matthew Mott, who will be in charge of the English coaching staff. Former England bowling coach David Saker and former Australian batter Michael Hussey will also be on the staff.

Saker is scheduled to join the squad in advance of the team’s T20I series against Pakistan, which will consist of seven matches, while Hussey is scheduled to join the coaching staff in front of the crucial event in Australia.

The two will be joining the support crew that already exists, which consists of Richard Dawson and Carl Hopkinson.

Since Matthew Mott took over from Chris Silverwood as head coach of the white-ball side, the team has been through a change. After Eoin Morgan departed from international cricket, Jos Buttler was promoted to the position of captain, marking yet another significant shakeup in the team’s leadership.

The changeover has not been an easy one at all, as Buttler’s team has suffered consecutive series losses to South Africa and India.

What did the England and Wales Cricket Board say?

The ECB issued a short statement, which read as follows, concerning their most recent round of appointments to the white-ball coaching staff:

“England Men’s white-ball Head Coach Matthew Mott has enlisted the support of former England bowling coach David Saker and Chennai Super Kings batting coach and former Australian international Michael Hussey for the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia in October and November.”

From 2010 to 2015, Saker was in charge of the bowling operations for the England men’s national team. Since then, during the course of the last seven years, he has served as a coach for a variety of teams, including the Australian cricket team, the Sri Lankan cricket team, and the Melbourne Renegades.

Since he retired from playing cricket in 2013, Michael Hussey, who played for Australia in over 300 international matches between 2004 and 2013, has served as a coaching consultant for the Sri Lankan cricket team, as well as for the Sydney Thunder and the Chennai Super Kings.
