Ex Australian spinner Nathan Hauritz has decided to join the spin bowling coach department for the Irish men. He got extensive training as a coaching apprentice with Australian domestic teams Brisbane Heat and Queensland Fire. Nathan took 63 wickets in 33 Test innings while claiming 63 wickets in the ODIs.
The opportunity was too good to not even think about. I love discussing spin bowling from all facets, and to be able to do that in an international environment while travelling the world, how could you not want to do it. My particular interest as a coach is the tactical and mental side of spin bowling. When you play at the top level of cricket your game is generally in a pretty sound space, but more often than not it comes down to how you perform on the day that needs the most work. I believe my career and experience will help me communicate with, and support the development of, our current groups of spinners. It's an incredibly exciting time to be part of cricket in Ireland.
