Cricket Australia named two new assistant coaches for Australia women’s team ahead of the Commonwealth Games, with Jude Coleman and Dan Marsh joining interim head coach Shelley Nitschke for the upcoming tri-series in Northern Ireland.
Coleman and Marsh come in as replacements for assistant coach Ben Sawyer, who has been appointed as head coach of New Zealand women’s cricket team. Sawyer worked with Australia’s pace bowlers in a full-time capacity in July 2021, having previously spent time with the group in a part-time role.

Nitschke, Coleman and Marsh will unite in Brisbane in June when Australia hold their second and final camp ahead of their trip to the United Kingdom.
Coleman, the Multiple Indoor Cricket World Cup-winning captain, had led Australia A to a 5-0 series clean sweep against England A earlier this year. She is the current assistant coach of Adelaide Strikers in the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL).
Marsh had supported Coleman on the same ‘A’ tour in January. The ongoing coach appointments are expected to be confirmed after the Commonwealth Games.
