Victoria supremo <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/andrew-mcdonald/news/">Andrew McDonald</a> was Wednesday appointed assistant coach to <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/justin-langer/news/">Justin Langer</a> with the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/australia/news/">Australian</a> men's cricket team. <p></p> <p></p>The position has been vacant since David Saker, who nurtured the likes of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins, stood down in February. <p></p> <p></p>Since then Langer has called on former team-mates such as Ricky Ponting and Steve Waugh to act as mentors around his squad. <p></p> <p></p>Langer said McDonald, 38, would compliment the current coaching panel. "I have no doubt his all-round knowledge and man management skills will be a positive addition to our team," he said. <p></p> <p></p>"The coaching success Andrew has enjoyed around the world in a relatively short period of time is testament to his skill, dedication and knowledge of the game." <p></p> <p></p>McDonald guided Victoria and the Melbourne Renegades to all three Australian domestic titles last season. <p></p> <p></p>He has also worked closely with a number of current Australian players, including Aaron Finch, Marcus Harris and James Pattinson, and coached in Britain and India. <p></p> <p></p>McDonald made four Test appearances for Australia in a playing career that spanned 15 years.
