Trevor Bayliss has described Alastair Cook's captaincy during the first Test against Australia in the Ashes as "top notch".
The coach, who was in charge of the Test side for the first time, told BBC Sport: "Any win is a fantastic feeling. I thought Alastair's captaincy was top notch. It always helps when the players underneath him are playing well.
"The players have been heading in the right direction over the last series with New Zealand and I was lucky to come in at this time. They are interested in playing good, attacking cricket.
"The boys are aware that when you beat Australia, the next match is going to be even tougher because they will come back hard."
Australia have not won a Test series in England since 2001.
