EX-ENGLAND international Mark Ramprakash has been appointed as batting coach at his former club Middlesex for two years.
The 43-year-old of Guyanese heritage, who retired from cricket in July, played for Middlesex for 13 years from 1987 to 2000 and Surrey for 11 years from 2001 to 2012.
During his career he achieved 114 first-class centuries and 48,931 runs.
“Middlesex is the club that gave me the chance to achieve what I have in cricket and I am delighted to be able to return to work with and help the current and next generation of Middlesex cricketers,” said Ramprakash.
"I am excited by the talent in the current crop of players and look forward to contributing to the club."
Former county and international team-mate Angus Fraser, who is now Middlesex’s director of cricket, said: "I am thrilled to have Mark back at Middlesex CCC.
"It is my job to provide Middlesex's cricketers with the best possible coaching, support and advice available and in Mark Ramprakash they have that."
Fraser added: "Mark Ramprakash will offer our batsmen something different. His record speaks for itself and in the past 25 years there has not been a better batsman in county cricket.
“Mark moved from Middlesex to Surrey in 2000, but I never felt his heart left the club.”
