Mark Alleyne and Neil Killeen will join Matthew Mott’s coaching team for England’s three-match ODI series in the Netherlands this week, the England Cricket Board confirmed on Monday.
Killeen will work as the pace bowling coach alongside Richard Dawson and Carl Hopkinson on the Mott’s coaching team, while Alleyne will be the batting coach.
Alleyne and Killeen have both previously worked with the senior England Men’s team, Killeen with the ODI team that played Ireland, and Alleyne with the International T20 squad during the current West Indies tour.
Alleyne, who has played eleven One-Day Internationals for England, is also a Test scout for the ECB, the assistant coach of Welsh Fire in The Hundred, and the Assistant Director of Sport at Marlborough College. Killeen, on the other hand, works at Durham County Cricket Club as an assistant Lead & Bowling Coach.
“I am really excited to join England’s white-ball squad for the ODI series; it’s a fantastic opportunity to work with new head coach Matthew Mott and captain Eoin Morgan, as well as an intriguing new group. Hopefully, the information and experiences I learn will benefit Durham ahead of our final few T20 games and into the Royal London campaign,” Killeen stated upon his hiring.
Uncapped players include Lancashire seamer Luke Wood and Gloucestershire paceman David Payne. This will be Wood’s first senior squad call-up, while Payne played in the ODIs against Pakistan last summer.
The three-match ODI series, part of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League, kicks off a busy summer for England Men, who also have Royal London Series matches against India and South Africa scheduled.
