Bayliss demands more from improving England


England still have a lot of work to do if they want challenge at the Cricket World Cup in 2019 despite their series win over Pakistan, says coach Trevor Bayliss.

After a disappointing Test performance in the United Arab Emirates, England turned on the style in the one-day matches to come from behind and record a 3-1 success.

Victory was assured after a stunning batting display from Jos Buttler that saw him bring up a century in 46 balls on Friday, the wicketkeeper-batsman racing to 116 not out in the tourists' 84-run win in Dubai.

Despite their impressive form Bayliss is not getting carried away and wants to see more improvement from his side.

"It's great to win away from home, especially on the sub-continent (sic) against a team like Pakistan who are playing in conditions they know very well," said Bayliss.

"Our goal is obviously a World Cup in four years' time, but there's no use thinking about that right now.

"We've got a lot of hard work to do between now and then.

"Yes, it's good to win matches and series like we did, but we can't rest on our laurels."
