Former England wicketkeeper James Foster has been named as the new Head Coach for the Northern Superchargers Men’s team in this year’s The Hundred.

Foster has extensive coaching experience around the world, including in the Indian Premier League, Pakistan Super League, Australia’s Big Bash and most recently as wicketkeeping coach for England. He has also worked with teams in the Bangladesh Premier League, Caribbean Premier League and Abu Dhabi T10.

One of his first challenges will be to finalise the list of players Superchargers are retaining from their 2021 squad and to prepare for the Men’s Draft at the end of March.
Foster, currently in Pakistan as Head Coach of Peshawar Zalmi in the PSL, said: “I’m delighted to be joining the Northern Superchargers and working with the team this season.

“I loved watching The Hundred last year and seeing so many kids and families enjoying it, and I am really looking forward to meeting up with the group and getting started.

“It’s a huge privilege and I’m thrilled to be working with an exciting group of players and hopefully we can excite the supporters with the style of cricket we play.”

Andy Dawson, Northern Superchargers General Manager, said: “James has a vast amount of experience working with high profile coaches from around the world and we’re thrilled to appoint someone of his calibre.

“He embraces the culture and environment we want to create at Superchargers, and we’re sure he will help us create sustainable success on and off the field.”

Hassan Cheema has also been appointed as the Superchargers Men’s team analyst ahead of the 2022 tournament. Cheema is currently working for Islamabad United in the Pakistan Super League and is highly regarded with experience working with teams around the world.
