Former New Zealand off-spinner Jeetan Patel has been appointed on a short-term coaching contract for the England cricket team for their tours of South Africa and Sri Lanka.
Patel had performed a role, similar to that of a bowling consultant, during the T20I leg of England's tour of New Zealand.
Patel will join England's party on December 24 in Centurion before the first Test in Supersport Park that will begin Boxing Day Against Proteas, which is live on Sky sports. He got to know the England men's team director, Ashley Giles, from their time together at Warwickshire - Giles was coach and then director of cricket, while Patel was overseas player and then captain - with the pair sharing numerous same qualities. He also enjoys a good rapport with England's Director of Cricket Ashley Giles, who was the coach and then director of cricket at the County, while Patel was an overseas player and then captain.
The deal is the second to follow Silverwood's appointment England's new head coach last week, with Paul Collingwood having also signed permanently as an assistant coach after previously working on a series-by-series basis.
As a result, Patel will end his long and illustrious career with Wellington later this month. He is now representing Wellington in New Zealand's Super Smash T20 competition and is set to play his last game for the franchise on 18 December against Central Districts. With age, he has grown more consistent, adding extra elements to his bowling.
Patel, who made 78 global appearances, he has also played county cricket for Warwickshire, alongside the current England men's team director Ashley Giles.
Their next assignment against South Africa consists of four Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is.
