English Cricket Board reshuffle: James Taylor vacates the Head Scout role

James Taylor is resigning as the Head Scout of England men’s cricket team, the England & Wales Cricket Board have announced. The announcement comes as England aim to set up a new ecosystem under Rob Key, the new managing director of men’s cricket at the ECB. 

The former England international took over the role in April 2021 after the position was abolished by Ashley Giles and all responsibilities directed to the head coach. Taylor served as a full-time selector before that. 

Key is expected to appoint a selector again

"James Taylor has been a great servant to English cricket both as a player and an excellent administrator over the past four years," Key said. "He has a deep passion for the game and is attuned to the current demands of a modern cricketer, having played with and against most of the England set-up and pathway players.

"Everyone at the ECB would like to thank James for his hard work and dedication and wish him well in the next chapter of his career."

James Taylor said: "It has been an honour to hold the position of selector for three years and the last year as Head Scout. I would like to thank everyone at the ECB for all their support. We have had some fantastic highlights during that period that I will remember forever.

"The time is right for me to explore new opportunities, and I'm excited about what lies ahead."
