Kevin Shine was appointed to the Nottinghamshire coaching staff in the winter of 2019, shortly after ending a 14-year stint with the ECB.

The former seamer had served as the governing body’s Lead Fast Bowling Coach, helping to secure four Ashes victories, a World T20 triumph in 2010, a rise to the top of the Test rankings in 2011 and the World Cup triumph of 2019 during his time with the national side.

It was a spell which coincided with Peter Moores’ two stints as England Head Coach, with Shine responsible for preparing a battery of pacemen for the rigours of international cricket.

The Berkshire-born coach previously enjoyed spells as Head Coach and Academy Director at Somerset, and was at the helm as the west country side won the 2001 C&G Trophy.

Shine’s playing career took him to Hampshire and Middlesex before concluding in Taunton, with the right-armer taking 287 wickets across all formats.
