Johannesburg - Former England batsman Matthew Maynard was named new head coach of the Titans cricket team on Tuesday.

Maynard replaces Chris van Noordwyk, who stepped down in April after two years in charge.

"To have the opportunity to coach one of the strongest franchises in South African domestic cricket is both challenging and exciting," Maynard said.

"I look forward to working with a group of players who are skilful and are determined to succeed.

"I hope to create an environment that is challenging and enjoyable and play a style of cricket that is rewarding to both players and spectators alike."

Maynard, who resigned as director of coaching at Glamorgan in November, was assistant England coach under Duncan Fletcher between 2004 and 2007.

He played four Tests and 14 ODI's for England between 1988 and 2000.

"Maynard's appointment as Titans head coach is exciting for the franchise," said Andy O'Connor, chairman of the Easterns Titans franchise.

"He has a great pedigree and I am sure will provide outstanding leadership."

Easterns Titans chief executive Elise Lombard said Maynard would take up the role on August 15.
