English bowling coach David Saker signs up for 3 more years
Sydney: The England Cricket Board has extended the contract of national bowling coach David Saker for three more years.
England’s announcement on Friday came after it retained the Ashes with a dominating run in Australia, with the fast bowlers playing a large role in that.
Australian Saker, who joined the team management before England won the Twenty20 World Cup in April, will continue until at least 2013. The signing coincided with the last day of the series.
Saker played first-class cricket in Australia for Victoria and Tasmania and coached in Victoria state.
Another Australian, Troy Cooley, was the bowling coach for England when it won at home in 2005 to claim the Ashes for the first time in 16 years. Cooley has since been hired by Cricket Australia.
