England on Tuesday appointed former veteran batsman Marcus Trescothick as the batting coach. They will join the team in mid-March during the T20 series.

He is currently on a tour of India with the team.
Marcus Trescothick will replace Trott
Trescothick will replace former England batsman Jonathan Trott. Trott was by now temporarily playing the role of England’s batting coach. Trott also replaced former South African batsman Jack Kallis.
Kallis has also been England’s batting coach
Kallis was involved in the Sri Lanka tour in January as the team’s batting coach. Trescothick currently holds the post of assistant coach for the English county team Somerset. He will join the team after resigning from there.
The post was vacant since Mark Ramprakash left
England had been looking for a permanent batting coach since 2019. The post was vacant since the departure of Mark Ramprakash in 2019. Now Trescothick, Louis and Jeetan will serve as assistants for England head coach Chris Silverwood.
English team’s performance will improve
England Cricket Board (ECB) performance director Mo Bobbat said that he is very happy to associate three different role models with the team. All three have left their own distinct mark in different formats of cricket. Their arrival will definitely improve the performance of the team.
