South African cricket star Jacques Kallis will help guide England’s batsmen when they tour Sri Lanka early next year.

The English Cricket Council (ECB) has confirmed that the former versatile Protea will be a batting consultant for two Tests and three ODIs during the tour. The first test is scheduled for January 14.

England head coach Chris Silverwood and his adjutant Paul Collingwood, in addition to Kallis, have enlisted the services of James Foster as wicketkeeper specialist and Carl Hopkinson as fielding coach. Also, Jon Lewis will take on the fast bowlers and Jeetan Patel the spinners.

Last season, Kallis was the Proteas’ batting consultant for the home series against England, making his Test debut against the English in 1995.
