Kevin James Shine (born 22 February 1969) is a former first-class cricketer and former coach of Somerset County Cricket Club, and the fast-bowling coach for the England cricket team.

His first-class career ran from 1989 to 1998, during which he played for Hampshire, Middlesex and Somerset. He took 249 first-class wickets at an average of 36.09, including 55 in the 1997 season. His best innings figures were 8 for 47 for Hampshire against Lancashire in 1992.

Coaching career[edit]

After retiring as a player due to injury, he served as coach of Somerset from 2001 to 2004. The team won the C&G Trophy in his first year in charge. He subsequently served as the director of the Somerset academy, and was appointed England's fast-bowling coach from March 2006 in succession to Troy Cooley. He faced criticism that under his coaching many England fast-bowlers failed to progress, particularly Steve Harmison.[1] He has since moved back to his original administrative role within the England setup at Loughborough University, and was replaced by Allan Donald.
