Ian Salisbury, specialist coach: “This is a very good team, including a number of very talented spinners. They are brilliantly coached by Pieter Seelaar and Ryan Campbell. It is an honour to have been invited to be part of the coaching team. The team has a chance to add a new chapter to the Dutch sports history.
For me, as a coach, it's a good experience to develop further. I have learned a lot from working with the English Women’s Team competing at the World Championships and I am sure that this tournament will also be a valuable experience."
Roland Lefebvre, high performance manager: ”The KNCB is extremely pleased that Ian has accepted to join and strengthen our coaching staff during the World Cup T20. Ian has an incredible amount of experience under his belt, both as a coach and as a county and international player for England. Ian’s spin bowling background especially will help our spinners and we have seen in previous tournaments the important role spin can play in the UAE.
We would like to thank Sussex CCC for their support and permission, to have Ian join our team. We wish the players and staff the best for the World Cup."
