He helped Leicestershire to win two County Championship titles in 1996 and 1998, and the T20 Blast in 2004, 2006 and 2011, and was appointed captain in 2007.

Nixon twice coached Jamaica Tallawahs to the Caribbean Premier League title before returning to Leicestershire as Head Coach four years ago.
