Keightley will step down as England Women’s manager
England women’s cricket coach Lisa Keightley will step down from her role at the end of the summer.
The Australian, 50, has been in charge since January 2020 and was the team’s first full-time female coach.
She has told the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) that she will not ask for a contract extension.
During her time in charge, England reached the semi-finals of the 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup and the final of the 2022 Women’s World Cup.
Their last series will be the September tour of India.
“We are incredibly grateful for the commitment and passion that Lisa has shown over the last two and a half years in the role,” said ECB Women’s Cricket Director Jonathan Finch.
“We have seen competition for places increase over the past 12 months and the team Lisa leaves behind is an exciting combination of youth and experience.
“Leading an international team is challenging at the best of times. It’s more difficult during a pandemic, and Lisa has been able to continue the development of the team during what has been the toughest period we’ve faced off the field.”
