Sridharan Sriram steps down as coach of the Australian cricket team to concentrate on his coaching career in India

Sridharan Sriram, a longtime assistant coach for Australia’s men, will leave the team to concentrate on his coaching career in India.

Sridharan Sriram, a longtime assistant coach for the Australian men’s team, said on Friday that he will leave the team to concentrate on his coaching career in India. Sriram, who is from Chennai, has been a member of the team for six years and has mostly served as a spin coach, but has also been essential to the team’s batting, fielding, and strategy across several seasons.

In order to spend more time with his rising cricketer son Rishab and his wife Pavi, he has opted to shift his attention to his coaching job with the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and other duties.

The ascent of Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar has been most closely associated with the former Indian all-rounder, who also developed strong relationships with Glenn Maxwell, Marnus Labuschagne, and Mitchell Swepson.

Zampa, who formerly placed in the top ten, is now considered to be the fifth greatest bowler in T20 cricket and Agar 11 under his guidance. Along the way, he has also developed Maxwell’s spin bowling.

In an official statement, Sriram said, “I have chosen to leave my current position as the assistant coach of the Australian men’s team after being on the road for six years.

“With the squad in mind, I believe this is a good time to act so they have ample time to get ready for two World Cups as well as the World Test Championship. Working across forms, including the World Cups and Ashes, has been a terrific experience for me, and I have learned so much “Added he.

Moreover, he added: “I became interested because of Greg Chappell, Troy Cooley, Pat Howard, and Marcus Stoinis, among others. I send my best wishes to the squad and the coaches for the future.
