Mark Ramprakash to Leave ECB
England National Lead Batting Coach, Mark Ramprakash, will leave the England and Wales Cricket Board in June to pursue other career opportunities.
Ramprakash, a former England international, has been involved with the England men’s set-up over the past six years working with players across the England senior men’s side and the pathways.
Commenting on the decision, Ashley Giles, ECB’s Managing Director of England Men’s Cricket, said:
“Mark has been an integral part of our coaching set-up over the past six years and has done an excellent job in developing players for the international arena. We both felt it was the right time for him to leave. He is ambitious and highly regarded in the game, and we wish him well in the next chapter of his coaching career.”
Mark Ramprakash, said:
“I feel the time is now right for me to move on from my role at the ECB and seek to further and broaden my career.
“The last six years have been a hugely enjoyable time of my life. In that time, I have been privileged to be able to support, encourage and mentor the Young Lions, England Lions and the England test and ODI teams.
“To have worked with the best players, alongside a variety of world-class coaches and support staff, has given me vast experience, which I will build on in the future. I want to thank them for the opportunity. Many have become friends for life.
“Finally, I wish the ECB and England cricket team all the best for the future.”
