Batsman Wayne Madsen will spend three days in Edinburgh next week coaching Scotland’s national and performance squads.
The 34-year-old, who scored 1,575 runs across all forms in a standout summer for Derbyshire, has been selected by Cricket Scotland’s acting Head Coach Toby Bailey as a guest coach at the start of their winter programme.
Madsen, who recently completed his ECB Level 4 coaching qualification, scored over 1,000 first-class runs for Debryshire in 2018, the fifth time he has achieved the feat since joining in 2009.
He recently committed his future to the county by signing a three-year extension until the end of the 2022 season.
Speaking to Cricket Scotland, Madsen said: “I am really excited to be working with such a talented group of players.
“The game in Scotland has made huge strides on the back of the national team’s success in recent years and having played with Calum [MacLeod] and Safy [Sharif] at Derbyshire, I’ve seen first-hand the skill, passion and desire that this group of players have.
“I look forward to adding my experience to the National and Performance Squads and assisting the players to improve and achieve their full potential.”
