London: Coach Trevor Bayliss expects Alastair Cook to lead England into next winter's Ashes.

Cook, who has captained his country more times than anyone else, recently admitted he did not know how long he would remain in the job, suggesting it could be as little as two months.

But Bayliss thinks the 31-year-old will still be in charge when England head Down Under trying to retain the Urn they won in 2015.

"He's talking about the next Ashes series and being out in Australia," Bayliss told BBC Test Match Special.
