The BCCI is set to appoint Australian coach Troy Cooley as the fast bowling coach of the National Cricket Academy (NCA). Cooley is widely regarded as one of the best fast bowling coaches in world cricket. A senior BCCI official said, “I would say that one of the biggest successes for Ganguly and Jay Shah has been convincing Cooley to work with the next generation of India’s fast bowlers at the NCA. We are hearing that BCCI will give a three-year contract to Cooley and he will work with NCA cricket chief VVS Laxman.
The brightest moment of his career as England’s bowling coach came during the historic 2005 Ashes series when the home team’s fast bowlers turned into a nightmare for Australian batsmen. Cooley was credited in the dressing room of the England team for the success of Andrew Flintoff, Matthew Hoggard, Simon Jones and Steve Harmison and planning for the poor performance of the Aussies.
