But, in consecutive winters, he has presided over abject series away to Australia and India, the other two members of the sport's Big Three off-the-field - and, notionally, England's equals on it.
During his frank analysis of England's campaign on the penultimate evening of the series, Farbrace said: "There's no doubt James Vince needs to score more runs if he's going to play worldwide cricket for England".
"I guess in isolation it's maybe a bit odd to some people that he's kind of said what he's said regarding himself, but if he's asked directly about his future, I can see why he has". During this time, England have won 15 games and drawn five - but lost 18.
Former captain Kevin Pietersen was one player never to be selected again after England's 2013-14 Ashes loss, and Nathan Lyon provocatively claimed he wanted to end more careers ahead of this summer's series. You have to give them credit. Wood, meanwhile, would have been present for the Test leg in Australia had he been considered fit and robust enough for the challenge.
England play five one-dayers against Australia, starting in Melbourne on Sunday.
He added: "A new voice and a different approach reinvigorates things".
Bayliss also said there would not be any wholesale changes to the England Test squad after the 4-0 series defeat in Australia, and that the likes of Mark Stoneman and James Vince would be given further opportunities to represent the country at Test level. Liam Livingstone, his team-mate at Lancashire, is a batsman of presence but his own county captain, Ryan McLaren was not alone last season when he observed that Livingstone was still discovering his game. Joe Clarke's undoubted talent has also been sporadically shown at best, although he is coveted by several big-spending counties, among them Nottinghamshire where the England selector, Mick Newell, is director of cricket.
Bayliss insists England did all they could to compete here.
President scraps voter fraud inquiry as states refuse to hand over data
Several critics suspected the commission would enable voter suppression, by enacting new measures that will make it hard to vote. While dissolving the commission, the administration did not concede the rarity of voter fraud in modern American elections.
"Trevor's been fantastic for us, he creates a brilliant atmosphere around the team which allows people to go out and play in that free fashion".
Stoneman's performances fell away after he was struck on the head in the Third Test while Vince flattered to deceive before getting out in the same manner. "He has looked as comfortable as anyone in the runs he has scored here but just makes a mistake and gets out".
"Being hit on the head didn't outwardly affect Mark's confidence in his practice".
"The blunt answer is he knows he has to score more runs if he's going to have a future with England".
"Personally, I love the Test cricket more than the white-ball cricket".
"But I think the guys will dust themselves down".
"That frustrates him more than any of us so it's obviously something he's got to work on". "You've got to be Superman to get through it. Separation of the two teams is happening because guys find it hard to put up with it".
