Written by Vipin Darwade

Long-time Australian men’s assistant coach Sridharan Sriram will depart the Australia men’s squad to focus on his coaching career in India, an official Cricket australia release stated on Friday. Chennai-based Sriram has been with the squad for six years as predominately a spin coach while also playing a key role in the batting, fielding and strategy for the side across multiple campaigns.

The development comes ahead of Australia’s tour of India next year.

He was a part of the Australia A program on an Indian tour before being appointed as spin bowling coach under the then head coach Darren Lehmann in 2016.

“After being on the road for six years it’s with a heavy heart I have decided to move on from my current role as an assistant coach of the Australian men’s team,” Sriram said in a statement.

“I feel this is an opportune moment keeping in mind the team, giving them enough time to prepare for two World Cups and the World Test Championship. It has been a great experience for me working across formats, World Cups and Ashes and I have come out incredibly richer in knowledge.”
