Trevor Harley Bayliss (born 21 December 1962 in Goulburn) is an Australian cricket coach and former player. He played for New South Wales between 1985 and 1997 before becoming a coach. He coached Sri Lanka between 2007 and 2011, a period which culminated in his team finishing as runners-up in the 2011 World Cup. He is currently the coach of the Sydney Sixers in Australia's Big Bash League and the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League and both the sides that he coached in above mentioned twenty-20 leagues ended up on a winning note.

Playing career

Bayliss grew up in the NSW country town of Goulburn, before moving to Sydney to play for the NSW state team. A middle order batsman, he played in 58 first class matches, scoring 3,060 runs at an average of 35.58, and 50 List A limited overs matches. He was NSW's player of the season for 1989–90, scoring 992 runs including two centuries.[1]

Coaching career

After the end of his playing career, Bayliss became a development officer for the New South Wales Cricket Association and coached the NSW second XI for a number of years. He replaced Steve Rixon as NSW coach in 2004-05 and led the state to the Pura Cup final where they defeated Queensland by 1 wicket. They couldn't defend the trophy the following season but did win the ING Cup.[2]

Trevor Bayliss succeeded Tom Moody as the coach of the Sri Lankan national team in August 2007. He was selected ahead of Queensland Bulls coach Terry Oliver by a selection committee comprising former Sri Lanka Cricket officials and captains including Aravinda de Silva, Ranjan Madugalle, Michael Tissera, Sidath Wettimuny and Bandula Warnapura.[3] He was initially thought to have been injured in an attack on the Sri Lankan team during their 2008-2009 tour of Pakistan, however this later turned out to be false.[4] He left the position after the 2011 World Cup, in which Sri Lanka finished as runners-up, being defeated by India in the final. He was subsequently appointed as the head coach of the Sydney Sixers, for Australia's inaugural Big Bash League, and the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League & on both the occasions he ended up being on a winning side.[5][6]
