Giles, who lost out to Peter Moores in the race to become England's head coach, will join the team for the first three days of the County Championship division one game between defending champions Durham and Yorkshire, from Chester-le-Street.
With several England players and hopefuls expected to be in action including Joe Root, Gary Ballance and Scott Borthwick, we'll get the former spinner's thoughts on England's future ahead of a busy international summer and his reflections on his time with the squad.
During the game Mike Atherton will track down Moores to hear his views on his first squad back (for Friday's one-day clash against Scotland) his back-room staff, and how he plans to tackle his second spell in charge.
Plus, we'll catch up with highly-rated opener Sam Robson to hear about life at Middlesex and his England hopes.
All this kicks off a jam-packed summer of cricket in which Sky Sports will feature every county live.
The line-up includes the new Royal London County Cup, now played in a 50-over format, and the NatWest T20 Blast, the new name for the domestic T20 competition.
