Mark Robinson the coach of England’s Women Cricket Team has left the position after scintillating four years. He was made coach of Women’s Cricket team back in 2015.
In the due leadership of Mark Robinson, England’s Women Cricket team achieved many heights. Under his leadership, they were at their peak form. Eventually, he led Women’s Cricket team to win the 2017 Women’s Cricket World Cup and next year too they were in the final of ICC Women’s World T-20 also. Robinson would be remembered as a modern great in the post of coach.
It’s very hard for someone to just come into the team and fill the boots of Robinson but England cricket board expectations from the next head coach will be really high.
Alastair Maiden has been selected as the next head coach for England’s Women Cricket team. He has an uphill task to fill the gap created by Robinson after he left the coaching position. His first task as a coach will be in December in ICC Wome’s Championship Series against Pakistan.
“However, after discussions with Mark, we have agreed that now is the right time for him to step down as England women’s head coach.”
Looking back at his time as coach of the England women’s team, Robinson said, “Nothing could ever surpass winning the ICC Women’s World Cup on home soil, but from a pure coaching perspective, reaching the T20 final last November – with a depleted team, three non-contracted players and three players twenty years old or younger – is a huge personal highlight.
“It’s been exciting to watch so many players grow and to watch so many records broken, but it feels the right time for me to take on a new challenge and to allow a different voice to come in before the next T20 World Cup in Australia.
“We have put a lot of groundwork in place, and this, coupled with the new investment into the women’s game will make a huge difference in time. I would like to thank everyone associated with England Women for all the kindness and support they have shown me and wish Heather and the team all the best for the future.”
