England batsman Joe Root says new head coach Trevor Bayliss will give the side an "advantage" in this summer's Ashes.

The 52-year-old Australian this week succeeded Peter Moores, whose second spell ended in a sacking in early May.

Before accepting the England role - which he had turned down twice, according to former New South Wales colleague Geoff Lawson - Bayliss was combining coaching roles with New South Wales in Australia and the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League.

Bayliss led Sri Lanka to the World Cup final and World T20 final during his spell in charge between 2007 and 2011, and has won two IPL titles with the Knight Riders.
