Cricket Australia (CA) has appointed Michael de Venuto and Jeff Van as assistant coach of the national team to strengthen its batting. A year ago, Australia cut its support staff to cope with the economic situation caused by the Kovid-19 epidemic. Venuto and Van will be joining the team to help head coach Justin Langer get ahead of the summer schedule. Next season, Australia will play the Ashes series, the Test against Afghanistan and the limited-overs series against New Zealand and Sri Lanka.

He has played 336 first class matches, 302 List A matches and 54 T20 matches in his career spanning 16 years. He is currently in St. Lucia with the Australian team on the West Indies tour for a limited-overs series.
