Adams to assess Notts batsmen

Chris Adams has been appointed as a consultant batting coach for Nottinghamshire.

The former Surrey team director was a part of Sri Lanka’s backroom team during their historic first Test series success over England earlier this summer and has been tasked with assessing Notts' batting stocks at all levels.

“Chris is held in very high regard and we’re pleased that he has taken this opportunity to spend some time assessing our players, coaching and facilities,” Nottinghamshire director of cricket Mick Newell told the club’s website.

“I felt that it was important to get someone in from the outside to look at what we are providing for young players and to make recommendations to help us to produce more home-grown talent.

“I’ve got a lot of respect for him and for his achievements in the game and I hope that he can provide some insight.”
