Jason Gillespie, Chris Rogers and Brad Haddin signed as coaches of Australia A

Former Australian cricketers Jason Gillespie, Chris Rogers and Brad Haddin have been signed on as coaches for the Australia A team for their tour of South Africa. 

Gillespie previously coached the Australian team during their T20 series against Sri Lanka, the Adelaide Strikers and Yorkshire. 

Rogers is currently the assistant coach of Somerset. 

Gillespie will team up with Chris Rogers to coach the first-class portion of the tour. After that, Haddin will take over during the tri-series which also includes India A. 

Gillespie said, 

 

 

 

I'm thrilled to be appointed as head coach of Australia A for the series against South Africa A and India A, and I'm looking forward to working with Chris and Brad in the coming months. 

 

 

 

The squads for the first-class portion as well as the tri-series are yet to be named. 

Pat Howard, the Cricket Australia team performance manager said, 

 

 

It's extremely pleasing to have three quality people in Jason, Chris and Brad on-board to guide the Australia A squad in their upcoming Tour of South Africa. All three have significant experience as players, in varying conditions across the world over their lengthy careers, which will no doubt be invaluable for the players touring with this squad.
