Motts has signed a four year deal with the England board as thus will be part of the squad till 2026. He will travel to Amsterdam in the next month for his first assignment as the England team will challenge Netherlands in an ODI series.
Rob Key, the managing director of the England board who appointed Motts in a statement said, “It is a real privilege to be able to announce Mathew Mott as the Head Coach of our men's white-ball team. He has had an incredible coaching journey with so many varied experiences that have brought him to this point where he was outstanding in the interview process and the perfect fit for our white-ball teams”.
Motts on his appointment as the England coach has said, “It was always going to take something special to leave the role that I have loved for the past seven years with the Australian women’s team. However, I genuinely believe that the time is right to play a role in helping the England men's ODI (one-day international) and T20 group continue to evolve as one of the best teams in the world”.
He added, “The idea of the split roles and the chance to work alongside Brendon McCullum in his red-ball role is an opportunity that I am incredibly enthusiastic about.”
