Paul Farbrace had a brief first-class career as a wicketkeeper with Kent and then Middlesex and Kent, a very sound gloveman but not good enough with the bat at a time the game was moving towards batsmen who could keep. He only played one full season, in 1991, when he held 46 catches and made eight stumpings. After finishing with Middlesex he moved into coaching, initially with the England women's team and then the Under-19s before returning to Kent. In July 2007 he was appointed Trevor Bayliss' assistant as Sri Lanka coach, and later took over as head coach, winning the World T20 in 2012. In 2015, Farbrace and Bayliss were reunited in the England coaching set-up with dramatic impact. Farbrace, initially appointed as interim coach for the visit of New Zealand in 2015, helped set in motion a new more liberated approach to one-day cricket that put the misery of that year's World Cup swiftly out of mind. When Bayliss came on board in time for that summer's arrival of Australia, England embarked on an upturn in their white-ball fortunes that would culminate in the 2019 World Cup win. Farbrace, however, didn't quite see England over the line in that competition. He quit his role early in the year to take up a new post as Sports Director at Edgbaston.
