LONDON:- Mahela Jayawardene is to join the England side as batting consultant. The prolific batsman will, ESPNcricinfo understands, be part of the England coaching team travelling to the UAE for the Test and limited-overs series against Pakistan. He is not a full time member of the ECB staff, but is likely to be contracted for a certain amount of days a year, much in the manner that Mushtaq Ahmed was in his period as spin consultant. Agencies
