Andrew Gale has been appointed as one of Darren Lehmann’s coaching assistants at the Northern Superchargers for next summer’s Hundred competition.
Yorkshire coach Gale will work alongside Craig White and Durham’s Neil Killeen as aides to the Australian.
The Hundred will clash with the Royal London one-day Cup, meaning Gale is likely to briefly hand over the Yorkshire head coach’s role to Rich Pyrah, currently bowling coach with the county.
Gale has revealed that he only played a bit part in the planning for Sunday’s draft, in which openers Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Adam Lyth were selected for the Superchargers.
The former captain is expecting their replacements at the top of the order to come from within the current White Rose squad and has praised Pyrah’s impact as bowling coach ahead of his step up.
“I’m one of Darren’s assistants, and I’m looking forward to it,” confirmed Gale.
