Abu Dhabi, Oct 12 (IANS) New Zealand bowling great Daniel Vettori will mentor promising England spinners during their ongoing tour of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

England are currently in UAE to play against Pakistan in a three-match Test series.

Seven spinners will follow Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid and Samit Patel to take spin lessons from Vettori under England Performance Programme (EPP).

Former New Zealand captain Vettori took more than 700 wickets in international cricket.

He is also the head coach of Indian Premier League (IPL) side Royal Challengers Bangalore. He will join the EPP batting and spin group, led by Zimbabwean Andy Flower, in Dubai for 10 days in November.

“Daniel has been one of the most successful and respected spinners in world cricket for almost two decades, so we are delighted to add his considerable experience to the England Performance Programme this winter,” Peter Such, EPP lead spin bowling coach, was quoted as saying by ecb.co.uk on Monday.

“I am sure that the players will benefit from working with him for the 10 days that he is with the EPP in November.”
