Indian Spin Bowling Coach of Australian Team Pulls Out of Pakistan Tour

Sridharan Sriram, Australia’s spin bowling coach, has opted to withdraw from the national team’s historic trip to Pakistan next month. Sridharan has been with the Australian national squad since 2016, and he has decided to return to India for the duration of the Pakistan-India series, according to reports. Sriram’s decision to withdraw from the tour remains unknown.

This is a big setback for Australia, which was already short on coaching talent following the resignation of head coach Justin Langer a few weeks ago. Due to the spin-friendly conditions available in Pakistan, Sriram’s assistance was critical.

Cricket Australia (CA) has confirmed that they are in communication with past players.

Daniel Vettori, the New Zealand captain, will serve as the tour’s interim spin bowling coach. Despite the fact that CA and Vettori have yet to negotiate an agreement, it is extremely expected that the former Kiwi spinner would accept the post and travel with the team on the tour.

Vettori is one of the most in-demand coaches in the world of franchise cricket. Between 2019 and 2021, he was Bangladesh’s spin bowling coach. He was also a member of Australia’s set up for a short time prior to their 2017 tour of India.

After the resignation of head coach Justin Langer a few weeks ago, the coaching staff was already thin.
