All is not well in the Australian team after the 2-1 defeat in the Test against India. Many senior players of the team had questioned the functioning of head coach Justin Langer. Cricket Australia has retained Langer in his position, but has made changes to the coaching staff. Cricket Australia has appointed two assistant coaches for the team.
Former Australia batsman Michael De Venuto and former South Australia batsman Jeff Vaughan have been appointed as assistant coaches. He will help head coach Justin Langer, who has been batting coach since Graeme Hick.
Apart from Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne, other Australian batsmen struggled against India in the absence of a batting coach. De Venuto expressed happiness over joining the Australian team. De Venuto said, “I am excited to be associated with the Australia team again. I have spent the last few months with the team and I will feel happy to join them.”
Di Venuto also talks about his experience in coaching. “Being the head coach of Surrey County has been a great experience for me. Apart from this, I have also spent time with the Adelaide Strikers, Hobart Hurricanes and Tasmania,” he said.
