Paul Collingwood joins Scotland coaching staff

Paul Collingwood will join the Scotland coaching staff for two World Cup qualifying campaigns.

Paul Collingwood has agreed a deal to join the Scotland coaching staff for two qualifying campaigns.

Scotland have employed the former England all-rounder as they look to secure spots in the Twenty20 and ODI World Cups.

"Leading into two vital qualifying events, I was very keen to change things a bit, add a couple of new voices to the coaching team and bring in coaches who had attained success at the very highest levels of the game," head coach Peter Steindl told reporters.

"Paul has been part of successful teams as a player and a captain and it will be great to have his experience and knowledge on board.

"We identified Paul as a person we were very keen to secure and I am delighted he agreed to join us for the winter."

Collingwood captained England to the T20 title in 2010.
