Dominic Cork will coach Derbyshire for the Vitality Blast

Derbyshire have once again recruited John Wright and Dominic Cork to coach the county's T20 side in 2018.

Wright returns as specialist coach for the Vitality Blast, having guided his team to eight victories and a place in the competition's quarter-finals last season.

Cork, a former Derbyshire captain, will serve below Wright as bowling coach for the tournament and the pair have been challenged to reach the last four this time around.

"We are delighted to have John and Dominic back as specialist coaches for the Vitality Blast this summer," said Derbyshire cricket advisor Kim Barnett.

"We saw great progress in the shortest format in 2017, securing a home quarter-final for the first time and playing a positive brand of cricket throughout the competition.

"John, Dominic and all the players are determined to build on the successes from last summer and our ultimate aim is to reach Finals Day and bring silverware to Derbyshire."
