Ricky Ponting, Australia name former captain as Twenty20 assistant coach

Ricky Ponting will join Australia’s coaching staff for next month’s Twenty20 tri-series against England and New Zealand.

The former Australia captain will act as assistant coach to Darren Lehmann, and will join Troy Cooley and Matthew Mott in a new-look backroom team.

Ponting worked with the side during a series against Sri Lanka last year.


The 43-year-old was recently named head coach of Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League.

Lehmann said: “It’s an exciting prospect for us, as coaches, to have the chance to take advantage of Ricky’s Twenty20 knowledge and, for the players, the chance to work with one of Australia’s all-time greats will be just as exciting for them.”

His regular deputies – David Saker, Brad Haddin and former England batsman Graeme Hick – will all be in South Africa beginning preparations for a four-match Test tour.

Australia play New Zealand in Sydney on 3 February and Auckland on 16 February. They will play England in Hobart on 7 February and Melbourne on 10 February.
