Trevor Bayliss was a stroke playing middle-order batsman and brilliant cover fielder who has quickly made his mark as the head coach of New South Wales. Bayliss took over from Steve Rixon for 2004-05 and experienced immediate success by guiding the side to the Pura Cup, backing it up the following summer with another tight win to seal the ING trophy.
Originally from Goulburn, Bayliss moved to Sydney to play for New South Wales and had his best season in 1989-90 when he scored 992 runs at 55.11. His haul included two centuries and six fifties and he was voted the state's Players' Player of the Year. He captained the Blues in a match against Queensland in 1990-91 and appeared for his state in 58 first-class games over eight seasons.
After he finished playing, Bayliss became a cricket development officer for the NSW Cricket Association and was a long-term Second XI mentor before taking the top job. Given his record as coach, it was no surprise when he was appointed by Sri Lanka to succeed Tom Moody.
