He began working with the England team last May after periods with the England Lions in 2012-13 and succeeds Graham Gooch, who left the role last summer.

Ramprakash played 52 Tests between 1991-2002, averaging 27.32.

He played for Middlesex and Surrey, making 114 first-class centuries, two of which were at Test level, and said: “I will draw on my 25 years of experience as a cricketer but also am open to learning all the time.

“I feel we have a very exciting group of players and am relishing the opportunity to continue working with them.”

Paul Downton, managing director of England Cricket, said: “Mark has formed excellent relationships with players and a strong partnership with Peter Moores and the management team.

“I have no doubt he will continue to have a positive impact as we begin an exciting winter of cricket.”
