Former New Zealand Captain Daniel Vettori & Andre Borovec has been signed in as the assistant coaches of the Australian men’s cricket team. The pair will begin their stint under Head Coach Andrew McDonald ahead of the Test Series in Sri Lanka, starting in June. Borovec who worked with the team as the spin consultant during their white-ball tour of Pakistan earlier this year will coach Australia ‘A team’ on their shadow tour of Sri Lanka.
Andre Borovec & Daniel Vettori will fill up the places left empty by the departing Jeff Vaughan, who has returned to Tasmania as the Tigers’ Head Coach, and McDonald himself, who served as a deputy to former head coach Justin Langer. Daniel Vettori who recently served as a spin bowling consultant for the Bangladesh tour had coached under McDonald in the past for their IPL team RCB. The duo has also played for the franchise in the past.
“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 McDonald.
Vettori had also worked with the Australian team during their white-ball tour of Pakistan. Appreciating the Australian team’s plan of action during the Pakistan tour, Vettori said, “I was really impressed with what I saw of the group in Pakistan in the way they approached preparation, planning, and playing. It’s a very strong and unified group which has the potential to have a very rewarding and hopefully successful period ahead.”
Borovec who has no playing experience on the International level had worked as a high-performance coach with McDonald in the Victoria and Melbourne Renegades setups. McDonald has closely observed Borovec’s working pattern & is quite impressed with his work as the high-performance coach during his stints with Victoria and Melbourne Renegades setups.
“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,” McDonald said.
