The former Indian allrounder has been closely associated with the rise of Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar. As well as Glenn Maxwell, Marnus Labuschagne, and Mitchell Swepson.
Zampa is now ranked the fifth best bowler in T20 cricket and Agar 11, having previously been ranked in the top ten. On the way, he has also developed Maxwell’s spin bowling.
“After six years on the road, it is with a heavy heart that I have decided to step down from my current role as an assistant coach of the Australian men’s team,” Sriram said in an official statement.
“I believe this is an appropriate time for the team, giving them enough time to prepare for two World Cups and the World Test Championship.” Working across formats, World Cups, and Ashes has been an incredible learning experience for me, and I have come out incredibly richer in knowledge,” he added.
“Greg Chappell, Troy Cooley, Pat Howard, and Marcus Stoinis were also instrumental in getting me involved,” he added. I wish the team and the coaches the best of luck in the future.”
“I love working with Sri; he’s someone I have a lot of respect for, and his work ethic and knowledge of the game have been invaluable to my career in recent years,” Adam Zampa said.
