Former England batsman Jonathan Trott will join Kent Spitfires' coaching team for the Royal London One-Day Cup this season.
The 37-year-old, who retired as a player with Warwickshire last year, will support head coach Matt Walker during the tournament.
Kent reached the final of the One-Day Cup last season but lost to Hampshire by 61 runs, with a repeat of that match live on Sky Sports Cricket from 12.30pm on Wednesday.
Trott won 68 one-day international caps for England and featured in the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup. He also won England's domestic one-day competition twice in his career, in 2010 and 2016.
He played his last professional game for Warwickshire against Kent on the last day of the 2018 County Championship season.
"It's a great opportunity for me to join a team such as Kent for this competition," said Trott.
"Their run to the final last year shows that the squad here is one of the strongest in one-day format and I'm looking forward to working with this talented group of players."
Kent's director of cricket Paul Downton, added: "Jonathan's experience in this format of the game will be a valuable asset to complement our coaching team here for the Royal London One-Day Cup."
