Former England batsman Jonathan Trott has taken up a coaching position for 40 days at Kent – opponents of his county side Warwickshire, where he spent a decade and a half – in the current round of Championship games.

Trott, who called time on his playing career last September, will link up with the county for the entire duration of the Royal London One-Day Cup campaign.

“It’s a great opportunity for me to join a team such as Kent for this competition. Their run to the final last year shows that the squad here is one of the strongest in one-day format and I’m looking forward to working with this talented group of players,” Trott was quoted as saying on Kent’s official website on Sunday.

Trott has already started working with the squad and took part in the warm-up drills on the final day of their County Championship game at Warwickshire on Sunday. (ALSO READ: England’s chances at World Cup are pretty high: Jonathan Trott)

The 37-year-old, who has played 52 Tests for England, scoring 3,835 runs at an average of 44.08, spent part of the winter working with the England Lions side, a highly successful stint as thought by some.

Kent were beaten in last year’s final at Lord’s by Hampshire. They begin their 2019 campaign at home to Hampshire on Wednesday.
