Dublin [Ireland], May 20 (ANI): Former Australia spinner Nathan Hauritz has been appointed as Ireland's spin bowling coach.
The 40-year old, took 128 wickets for Australia, playing all three formats in a nine-year international career. After retiring in 2016, he coached Brisbane Heat in the BBL and the women's team Queensland Fire since 2020.
"The opportunity was too good to not even think about. I love discussing spin bowling from all facets, and to be able to do that in an international environment while travelling the world, how could you not want to do it. My particular interest as a coach is the tactical and mental side of spin bowling," said Hauritz as reported by ESPNcricinfo.
"When you play at the top level of cricket your game is generally in a pretty sound space, but more often than not it comes down to how you perform on the day that needs the most work. I believe my career and experience will help me communicate with, and support the development of, our current groups of spinners. It's an incredibly exciting time to be part of cricket in Ireland," he added.
Hauritz represented both Queensland and New South Wales in first-class and List A cricket, as well as featuring for Brisbane Heat, Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash. (ANI)
