England rope in Jeetan Patel as spin-bowling consultant

Jeetan Patel has been appointed England spin bowling consultant

Former New Zealand off-spinner Jeetan Patel has been appointed England's spin bowling consultant for the upcoming tours of South Africa and Sri Lanka.

Due to this appointment, Patel will end his long career with Wellington later this month. Now playing for Wellington Firebirds, he has announced his retirement from Cricket Wellington and will play his last match in the Super Smash against Central Stags on December 18.

Jeetan Patel has retired from his nearly two-decade first-class career with Wellington in New Zealand. With age, he has grown more consistent, adding extra elements to his bowling.

Patel has made a decision to bring his 19-year career with Wellington to a close after 307 appearances for his hometown with a spin bowling consultant job available with England. Patel has a fair amount of knowledge of English conditions as well, having played for Warwickshire.

Rumor: Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Coming to PS5 ‘Sooner Than We Think’
Khan revealed speculated that the sequel to the popular Spider-Man game will not be launching on day one of the PlayStation 5 . And of course up until now we haven't heard anything from the developers to confirm that a sequel is even in the works.

Hugely respected around the county game, Patel has claimed 473 first-class wickets for Warwickshire - he has 892 all together and looks set to fall just short of the 1000 mark - at an average of 26.11 when other spinners have struggled to maintain a place in the game.

Meanwhile, England will play South Africa in four Test matches followed by three ODIs and three T20Is.

It will also play an important role during England's Sri Lanka test tour starting in March 2020, when Joe Root's team plays a two-game series of tests as part of the ICC World Championship.
