Ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia, England have roped in former English bowling coach David Saker and Chennai Super Kings batting coach and former Australian batter Michael Hussey in their coaching set-up for the next month's ICC marquee event.

Both Saker and Hussey will work under England's white-ball head coach Matthew Mott.

"Saker, England Men's bowling coach from 2010 to 2015, will join the tourists in Pakistan for the seven-match tour preceding the World Cup. Hussey, 47, who had a stellar career as a middle-order batsman for Australia in all three formats, will join the England set-up for the World Cup," England and Wales Cricket Board said in a statement.

Saker will continue with England's coaching staff after the T20 World Cup while Hussey will only serve England at a capacity of coaching consultant till the showpiece event in Down Under.

England's next assigment is against Pakistan where they will play seven T20Is in Pakistan, commencing from Sepember 20. After that, England will play three-match T20I series against Australia before the start of the T20I World Cup in Australia.

The touring party will fly to Pakistan on 14 September.
