It has been away from home that the Test team have struggled, winning in South Africa on Bayliss' first tour but losing four of their next six overseas series, with a 3-0 whitewash of Sri Lanka last year their only other success to go with a combined five wins across 20 Tests.

"The aim is to win everything. Winning that World Cup, I'm obviously delighted we did, but maybe the Test team suffered a bit as a result.
"It's almost about trying to re-centre now, bringing it back to somewhere in the middle and fighting a war on all fronts.
"I think we can. It's a great challenge."
Silverwood was announced as England's new head coach across all formats on October 7, stepping up from his position as bowling coach which he occupied since January 2018.
Upon his appointment, Sky Sports' Nasser Hussain described Silverwood as a "safe pair of hands", adding "he's very popular in the England dressing room, already in there with the players" but that "if he wants to do a good job, he'll have to upset a few as well".

Key to turning around England's Test fortunes will be fixing a batting lineup that has under-achieved in recent years and, more specifically, getting the best out of skipper Root.
Root has bounced between No 3 and his preferred No 4 spot in the batting order and, in an effort to fix England's top-order troubles, he moved back up the order again for the Ashes.
But, Root's average slips from 47.91 to 38.12 when batting at No 3, scoring 13 fifties and only two hundreds across his 49 Test innings at the position, with his last ton coming three years ago in India.
Root is now set to slot back in at No 4 - where he averages 48.39 - in New Zealand, one of a number of changes to the batting lineup, with opener Dom Sibley set to make his Test debut, Joe Denly jumping up to No 3, Ollie Pope returning to the middle order and Joe Buttler taking the gloves and slotting in at No 7.

"Wherever Joe wants to bat, I support him," said Silverwood. "He is our best batsman and we want him in a great frame of mind, going out and scoring runs.
"And it can free him up in terms of captaining the side as well.
"It's about stripping away some of the pressures from him, giving him the support that he needs and allowing him to be the player we all know he is.
"There is going to be a re-focus on batting for long periods of time. You will probably see selections that suggest that is what we're trying to do, like Sibley coming in at the top of the order, Joe dropping back to four.
"Jos has got the gloves. We think Jos at No 7 can be devastating. He's not someone the opposition captain would like to see there.
"But we've seen he can play both games. He can bat for long periods of time but, equally, if he needs to take the game forward, he can do that very effectively as we've seen.
"It's old fashioned, but it's about setting out to score heavily and then bowl sides out."
