Former England Captain Paul Collingwood is all set to become a member of coaching staff of Scotland ahead of the 2015 Cricket World Cup. Collingwood, who is England’s most capped one-day player and also a World Twenty20-winning captain, had worked with Scotland as their interim head coach when they qualified for the next year’s World Cup in February.
Collingwood said: “It’s a great pleasure for me to be back on the coaching team with the Scotland squad for the 2015 World Cup. I’m very much looking forward to working with them to help get the team fully prepared for these incredibly important matches.”
Scotland’s head coach, Grant Bradburn, added: “We are fortunate to once again have the valuable services of Paul Collingwood on board. Paul will bring a calmness and confidence to our environment and is very familiar with all of our players having been a support coach with Scotland during the World Cup qualifiers in February. Having the experience of Paul in our corner will be a huge asset for all of us during this event.”
Scotland also face hosts Australia and New Zealand, World T20 Champions Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan in the tournament. Apart from these teams, Scots also face England, which holds the pride of both the countries in Christchurch on February 23.
