England coach Trevor Bayliss wants T20 matches scrapped from the international calendar.
Bayliss was speaking after his side’s failure to reach the final of the Trans-Tasman Series in New Zealand, despite beating the hosts by two runs on Sunday.
‘I wouldn’t play T20 internationals. I’d just let the franchises play,’ the Australian Bayliss was quoted on Sky Sports news.
‘If we continue putting on so many games, there’ll be a certain amount of blowout, not just players but coaches as well,’ he said.
Bayliss added that international T20s should be played around the ICC’s T20 World Cup.
‘If you want to play a World Cup every four years or whatever it is, (then) maybe six months before you get the international teams and let them play some T20 internationals.’
England lost three of their four Trans-Tasman Series matches, and will watch from the sidelines as New Zealand and Australia do battle in the final on Wednesday.
