    Former Trinbago Knight Riders/T&T Red Steel all-rounder and coach Jacques Kallis has been appointed as England’s batting consultant.

    His stint will be for next month’s Test series in Sri Lanka which England insists continues despite the latest wave of COVID-19 in the UK.

    According to ESPNcricinfo, it is not expected that Kallis will be involved in England’s subsequent Test tour of India.

    Kallis is considered by many as an all-time great with 25,534 runs and 577 wickets for South Africa across Tests, ODIs and T20Is.

    He was also part of the 2015 CPL-winning T&T Red Steel team before moving on to coach and mentor the rebranded TKR franchise.
