Stephen Fleming has been roped in as head coach of Nottingham-based men’s team in The Hundred competition starting next year.
The former New Zealand skipper led Nottinghamshire to County Championship title in 2005 and has had a successful stint with Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League, guiding them to three title wins.
The women’s team will be under the influence of ex-Yorkshire cricketer Salliann Briggs.
Briggs is currently the coach of Hobart Hurricanes in the Women’s Big Bash League.
"I am looking forward to returning to Nottingham," said Fleming. "It was a special part of my career and it allowed me to fall back in love with the game. My memories with Nottingham and Trent Bridge are outstanding."
The draft for The Hundred will take place on October 20. Fleming added that he will be looking forward to pick the brains of local coaches to formulate the best possible team.
"I'm really looking forward to working with some of the talented local coaches," Fleming said.
"You really have to be on your game from the first pick in The Draft and make sure you get players that represent what you stand for and how you want to play. Having local coaches is a massive part of that - working with our three counties - to tap into their knowledge of the players."
