Australian John Dawes to be India's new bowling coach
New Delhi: Former Australian first-class pacer Joe Dawes will take over as the Indian cricket team's bowling coach after Eric Simons' tenure comes to an end at the completion of the ongoing tour of Australia.
"Joe Dawes has been appointed the Bowling Coach of the Indian team, for a period of two years," BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in a statement.
A right-arm paceman, Dawes represented Queensland in Australia's domestic circuit in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
The 41-year-old got into coaching subsequently and is Queensland Cricket's player professional development manager.
He has also had stints as bowling coach of South Australia and Adelaide Strikers (Big Bash League).
In the 76 first-class matches he played, Dawes picked up 285 wickets at average of 25.
Simons, who joined the Indian team in January 2010 for a two-year term, is also the head coach of IPL team Delhi Daredevils.
He had been drawing criticism after Indian pacers were found wanting in the Test whitewashes at the hands of England and Australia despite helpful conditions in both the countries.
