England Women’s head coach Lisa Keightley relinquishes her role

England Women’s head coach Lisa Keightley will leave her role and has decided not to seek a contract extension. England will now begin the process for recruiting a new coach just over six months out from the 2023 T20 World Cup in South Africa.

Keightley’s last assignment will be the white-ball home series against India, commencing September 10. The Australian took command of the Heather Knight-led side in late 2019, and guided England to the final of the 2022 ODI World Cup and the semifinal of the 2020 T20 World Cup where rain robbed them of a spot in the final. In the Birmingham Commonwealth Games 2022 at home, England lost to New Zealand in the bronze medal bout.
