Harris to coach Australia bowlers on South Africa tour

first_img(REUTERS) – Former paceman Ryan Harris has taken a major step towards achieving his ambition of becoming Australia’s permanent bowling coach after the 36-year-old was handed the role for the team’s limited-overs tour of South Africa.Harris, who retired from all forms of cricket last year, played 27 Tests, 21 one-day internationals and three Twenty20s for Australia.He will join head coach Darren Lehmann and assistant coach David Saker on the tour starting on September 27, where Australia will play a single one-dayer against Ireland and a five-match series against hosts South Africa.“It’s great experience to learn from David Saker and Darren Lehmann, I’m really just going to sit back and watch and learn,” said Harris, who took 113 wickets in Tests and a further 44 in the 50-over format.“Eventually, I’d like to work my way to the top and become a bowling coach of the Australian team one day. Just like playing, you have to earn your stripes and learn the ropes.”Lehmann welcomed the appointment of Harris, who is currently the assistant coach of Australia’s national performance squad.“I’m excited to have Ryan on board, a player and person of his calibre will no doubt offer strengths to our national side,” Lehmann said in a statement.“It’s a win-win having two experienced coaches in Ryan and David Saker being able to nurture our young group, particularly the up and coming bowlers joining, and we expect a positive response both on and off the field.”last_img read more

Miralem Pjanic is the Best Football Player in Serie A

first_imgWithin the 11th round of the Italian Serie A, the match will be played between Inter and Roma, for which are playing B&H representatives Edin Dzeko and Miralem Pjanic.Before the match, Dzeko addressed the media and said that he is very pleased that his team is at the very top.”Currently we are in the top, but the season is very long and it is important who will eventually be the first. I think between us, Inter, Napoli, Fiorentina, and of course Juventus, that we should not write off as favorite,” said Dzeko and added:”There are couple of phenomenal player in Napoli, but the best is Higuain. Gonzalo, together with Miralem Pjanic, is the best player in Serie A.”For the end of addressing, Diamond admitted that Inter wanted to bring him this year and Mancini was pretty interested for his services, since he knows him well from the time when they worked together in Manchester City.”He tried to bring me, but there was nothing concrete. I’m very happy here, Mancini is the man who brought me to City and allowed me to play at the higher level. We won together and I was annoyed that I’m not playing, and he knew it, but he never blamed me. I was called ”super replacement” in England, because I would score goals when I enter the match and I did not like it. It is not true that I was happy when Mancini left the City.”(Source: vijesti.ba)last_img read more

ReportsDPD Div. 1Drumkeen Utd. Res. 3Bonagee Utd. Res. 1Drumkeen took all three points in this encounter with Swilly at St Patricks Park on Saturday. The home team took the lead on twenty eight minutes with a superb goal from Sean Peoples when his long range effort from thirty five yards crept in under the cross bar giving goalkeeper Caolan Bolton no chance. Up until the goal Swilly had the lion’s share of possession without creating any real chances of note, Oisin Duffy then had a couple of wides for Swilly before Drumkeen doubled their advantage after thirty nine minutes through Peter McNamee, Lee Guthrie’s effort was saved by keeper Bolton and the ball fell to McNamee who made no mistake from two yards out. Drumkeen went in two up at half time. Swilly nearly pulled one back right at the start of the second half but Cormac Toland saw his effort just go past the post. Drumkeen played much better in second half but Swilly were still in the game and had a Shaun Crossan shot saved by Michael Gibson and Caolan Murray fired wide. Drumkeen wrapped up the points when Conor Laverty got the third when he scored from a Peter McNamee right wing cross. The home team might have got a fourth, Lee Guthrie had a shot saved and Conor Laverty put in a good cross but there was no one there to get on the end of it. Swilly did pull a goal back with five minutes left but it proved to be no more than a consolation goal. Some good young players on both sides with Johnny Black and Lee Kennedy doing well for Drumkeen and Caolan Murray and Ryan McDaid showing well for Swilly.DRUMKEEN: Michael Gibson, Johnny Black, Darren Bonner, Kevin Boyle, Chris Kyle, Lee Guthrie, Shane Laverty, Lee Kennedy, Sean Peoples, Conor Laverty, Peter McNamee, Subs: Mark Bonner on for Sean Peoples,SWILLY, – Caolan Bolton, Lewis Cole, Caolan Murray, Glen McElhinney, Anthony Fisher, Shaun Crossan, Cathal Diver, Ryan McDaid, Oisin Duffy, Liam O Donnell, Cormac Toland, Subs: John Roulstone on for Bolton at half time, Referee Vincent Mc Laughlin.Fixtures Wednesday, July 16th at 7:30pmDonegal News League CupGroup ACockhill Celtic v Drumkeen Utd.
