Australia appoints Daniel Vettori as their assistant coach!
Former New Zealand skipper and legend, Daniel Vettori has joined the Australian team as their new assistant coach. The former Kiwi all-rounder will travel to Sri Lanka for his first assignment. Along with Vettori, the management has also named Andre Berovec as the new assistant coach of the Australian team.
Andrew McDonald, the new head coach of the Australian team has worked with Daniel Vettori before. Both of them were part of the Bangalore squad previously where McDonald worked as an assistant of Daniel Vettori. Thus, the connection is already there and now the Australian fans will expect that this duo can bring back the glory days of Australia – Days where the Kangaroos were just unbeatable.
This is not the first time that the former spinner will be a part of the Australian set-up. He travelled with the squad in Pakistan and thus he knows the players well enough to work with them. When asked about his previous experience with the squad, Vettori said, “I was really impressed with what I saw of the group in Pakistan in the way they approached preparation, planning and playing”. He added, “It's a very strong and unified group which has the potential to have a very rewarding and hopefully successful period ahead”.
Borovec has also worked with the team and with the Australian A squad in the last one year. “Andre has been fantastic for the group when he has been involved as an extremely skilled and experienced high-performance coach. He is a great fit culturally and brings the skills to complement our high-performance specialists”, said Andrew McDonald, the head coach of the Australian team.
“I have worked with Daniel previously and could not speak more highly of his approach, work ethic and rapport he brings. His experience and balanced style are well documented. He is a great fit and will bring an enormous amount of knowledge to the team”, said the coach regarding Vettori.
The Kiwi however will remain as the head coach of the Birmingham team in the hundred. He will take his time off when Australia play Zimbabwe. He will resume his duties with the Australian team just before they tour India in preparation of the T20 World Series.
Report also suggests that the team is looking for a full time manager after Gavin Dovey’s departure. Simon Allport will fill the role for the Sri Lankan series.
