Thunder captain set to take first steps into coaching career

Sydney Thunder captain Alex Blackwell will take her first steps into coaching this off-season after being named part of the coaching staff for the Lancashire Thunder, who play in the UK's Kia Super League.

"I am excited to work with local up and coming cricketers, in addition to some of the world's best, as coach of Lancashire Thunder in the Kia Super League this year," said Blackwell who has now retired from state and international cricket.

"After recently retiring from a 15 year international cricket career, I'm keen to get into coaching and I am thrilled to be given an opportunity to coach in one of the world's premier T20 competitions."

Blackwell will join up with the squad prior to the competition which kicks off for Thunder on July 22, as they host Loughborough Lightning at Southport CC.
