Hick hired for Cricket Australia role

Former England batsman Graeme Hick has been appointed as high performance coach at Cricket Australia's centre of excellence in Brisbane.

The Zimbabwe-born 47-year-old, who played 65 Tests and 120 one-day internationals, takes over from Stuart Law, who is himself taking on the Queensland head coach role vacated when Darren Lehmann took the job with the national team.

Hick's job will focus mainly on the development teams, including Australia A and the Australia Under-19s.

Hick, who retired from first-class cricket in 2008 and had been working in a consultant role with the Australian Institute of Sport, said: "Over the years I have developed a huge amount of respect for Australian cricket and the Baggy Green.

"I am excited about the chance to work with Australia's young talent and being able to assist in their growth and development. This is going to be a great challenge for me and one I am really looking forward to."
