8. Trevor Bayliss
Although he never had the experience of playing an international cricket match, yet he proved his mettle by his scintillating performance as the coach of the Sri Lankan cricket team from 2007-2011 and England since 2015. He has also served as the coach of New South Wales, Kolkata Knight Riders and the Sydney Sixers. The feats achieved by the teams while he was the coach are quite commendable.
Sri Lanka reached the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 and also the final of the ICC World T20 2009. They also won the Asia Cup in 2008 and reached the final of the Asia Cup 2010. He led the Kolkata Knight Riders to the IPL title twice in 2012 and 2014. He also played a pivotal role in Sydney Sixers’ victory in the Big Bash League and CLT20 in a single season only. Hence in terms of achievements, his record is quite fascinating.
