England Cricket Coaching Staff: The English cricket team known for having a strong, star-studded support staff in all formats.
Currently playing their second test on the tour of India, England have a hectic year which will see them play several home and away series in addition to the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup in India later in the year.
After shutting out Sri Lanka 2-0 and beating India in the first test by an overall margin, England have had a terrific start to the year and are keen to continue their form as the year progresses.

Undoubtedly among the best teams in all formats over the past couple of years or so, England are thriving thanks to a stellar support staff of full-time coaches and part-time consultants, who are mostly former cricketers.

As for consultants for skilled jobs, former South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis had served as a stick consultant in Sri Lanka. In the current tour of India, Kallis has been replaced by former English drummer Jonathan Trott.
Of note, former England opener Marcus Trescothick also acted as their batting consultant for a brief stint to white ball last year.
It was in December of last year that England announced three full-time coaches, namely stick, bowling and spin bowling. Once the names of the selected candidates are announced, expect England to further strengthen their support staff across all formats.
Chris Silverwood rightly supports @ DomBess99 He’s a great character and his accuracy will improve, but only when he sorts out the position of his head (like Ashwin did.) Anyone with their eyes almost vertically aligned will still struggle for consistency. #INDvENG pic.twitter.com/musJD1MFbD
