Ashley Giles, the former England left-arm spinner, will join the England Performance Programme (EPP) squad in India as the team's official spin coach.

"I'm really looking forward to the opportunity of working with the players involved in the EPP," Giles said. "It's exciting to be so hands-on in a coaching role, particularly with my new position as director of cricket at Warwickshire.

"It'll be great to get back involved in the England set-up after being forced out early through injury and being around an England dressing room again in India will be a fantastic experience."

Martyn Moxon, the director of cricket at Yorkshire, takes on the role of batting coach for the four-week high performance camp, which encompasses two weeks of intensive training at Mohali, followed by two weeks at the MRF Academy in Chennai.
