The 48-year-old has overseen his native Australia’s dominance of the women’s game as holders of the Ashes and both the T20 and 50-over World Cups.

Mott has also had a spell in county cricket in charge of Glamorgan and with Australian side New South Wales.

“It was always going to take something special to leave the role that I have loved for the past seven years with the Australian women’s team,” said Mott.

“However, I genuinely believe that the time is right to play a role in helping the England men’s ODI and T20 group continue to evolve as one of the best teams in the world.”

His first series will be a three-match one-day international tour of the Netherlands starting on 17 June, before Twenty20s and ODIs against India and South Africa later in the summer.
