David Capel, the former coach of Northamptonshire and England who became the county's head coach, underwent surgery for a brain tumor.
A statement from Northamptonshire said the surgery was successful and that Capel is now recovering at home.
"David Capel asked the Northamptonshire County Cricket Club to convey his thanks to all supporters and former colleagues who sent their good wishes and messages of support during their illness," the club said. "Everyone connected with the club wants David a complete and rapid recovery."
Capel spent 33 combined years in Northamptonshire, serving as head coach from 2006 to 2012. She was also assistant coach of the women's team in England between 2013 and 2015, before briefly occupying the same position in Bangladesh.
During his playing career, he made 15 Tests and 23 ODI appearances between 1987 and 1990, often being entrusted with the unenviable task of filling Ian Botham's shoes. In first class cricket, he scored more than 12,000 races and took almost 550 windows.
