“We are delighted to confirm Chris as England Men’s Head Coach,“ said director of England men’s cricket Ashley Giles.
“We have gone through a thorough process and looked at all the options that were available to us. Chris was the standout candidate.
“I believe he is what we need to take our international teams forward.
“He is somebody we know well, but it is his intimate understanding of our structures and systems and his close relationships with Test captain Joe Root and white-ball captain Eoin Morgan that will help us develop our plans for the next few years.”
