Collingwood joins Scotland coaching staff

Former England batsman Paul Collingwood has once again committed to helping Scotland, rejoining their coaching staff in the lead in to the World Cup in February.

Collingwood was part of their coaching outfit earlier this year, helping them qualify for the ICC event, but then went to help England during the World Twenty20 before resuming his playing job with Durham.

Collingwood said on Monday: "It's a great pleasure for me to be back on the coaching team with the Scotland squad for the 2015 World Cup.

"I'm very much looking forward to working with them to help get the team fully prepared for these incredibly important matches."

Scotland's head coach Grant Bradburn added: "We are fortunate to once again have the valuable services of Paul Collingwood on board with us for the World Cup.

"Paul will bring a calmness and confidence to our environment and is very familiar with all of our players having been a support coach with Scotland during the World Cup qualifiers in February.

"Having the experience of Paul in our corner will be a huge asset for all of us during this event."
