Matthew Mott, coach of England’s white-ball teams, remains determined to continue in his role despite the team’s disappointing early exit from the ODI World Cup. Mott, who is 18 months into a four-year contract, guided England to victory in the T20 World Cup last year but faced speculation about his future after a string of losses in the 50-over tournament.
Following England’s qualification for the 2025 Champions Trophy, Mott expressed his disappointment with the team’s performance at the World Cup but remained confident about the future. The team is set to tour the Caribbean next month to play West Indies, and Mott expects to continue as coach alongside captain Jos Buttler, despite the disappointing World Cup campaign.
While Mott did not seek direct assurances about his position, he indicated that he expects to carry on as coach and emphasized his determination to turn things around. He also praised Buttler’s leadership during the tough times, expressing confidence in the captain’s ability to bounce back.
Mott acknowledged that the team’s performance in the World Cup fell short of expectations but highlighted their tenacity and resilience in their final two matches. He also mentioned the challenges of the team’s preparation, noting that a short turnaround time between the end of the home summer and the start of the tournament may have impacted their performance.
Overall, Mott remains focused on the team’s future and is determined to continue leading them despite the disappointing World Cup campaign.
