Verhaeren, 44, is currently technical director for the Dutch Swimming Federation but will start his new role in Australia in January. He fills the spot left vacant since Leigh Nugents departure in March in the wake of last years disappointing London Olympic campaign and subsequent ugly fallout. Announcing the appointment a break with tradition in signing a foreign head coach new Swimming Australia president John Bertrand said it was another step in enhancing a worlds best approach for the sport. Aussies see Coulter-Nile as quick fix Steve Rixon Paceman Nathan Coulter-Nile is on the verge of returning to the Australian one-day team CRICKET By JOEBARTON in Jaipur AUSTRALIA will consider bringing in fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile following yesterdays shock loss to India in Jaipur. After setting an enormous target of 360 for victory, Australias bowlers were unable to contain Indias top three ultimately losing the match with an astonishing 39 balls to spare. While reluctant to make changes to the team which contested the first two clashes, interim coach Steve Rixon admitted they were looking at some alternatives. Traditionally, tomorrows venue Mohali has been the one Indian venue to offer assistance to seam bowlers, which could allow Coulter Nile to force his way into the side. The 26-yearold, who has 46 domestic oneday wickets at an average of 25.78, has an extra level of speed compared to the likes of Shane Watson, James Faulkner and Clint McKay. I hope there doesnt have to be a change but it will be considered, Rixon said. Youve got the likes of someone with a little more pace in Coulter-Nile that could be a possibility. But at the end of the day, weve probably got the best 11 on the park and hopefully theyll perform a little better next time. Coulter-Nile played in Australias standalone Twenty20 loss in Rajkot, taking 1-44, but he is also considered one of the countrys premier fieldsmen and is a more than handy, and occasionally dynamic, lower-order batsman. Rixon said that there were many facets of Australias bowling which needed to be addressed following the onslaught. Weve got a bit of homework to do on our bowling, Rixon said. First things first, you make sure youre proactive about getting it solved. Were not going to be reactive to it because I think, in a game like that, its a one-off. In the position of the game last night, maybe we probably needed a plan B operation a little bit earlier than it actually did. Plan B probably comes back to knowing the best ball youve got and working accordingly with that. McDermott back to put fire into Ashes attack CRICKET ByMALCOLMCONN McDermott Thatsmy job, to get us back there knocking teams over CRICKET Australia has done a welcome backflip by reappointing pace guru Craig McDermott as Test fast bowling coach. A month after high performance manager Pat Howard ruled out recalling McDermott to a senior role, he announced the former champion quick would share the role. Current bowling coach Ali De Winter, the former Tasmanian all-rounder, will remain one-day and Twenty20 bowling coach. McDermott resigned as Australias bowling coach in May last year. Craig said he left for family reasons at the time and we havent really reviewed that, Howard said last month. Yesterday, Howard claimed that he had been in constant dialogue with McDermott. While it was always something that was a possibility it wasnt being discussed with Craig at the time, Howard said of McDermotts possible return. Weve been looking at the systems the whole way through, so it hasnt changed as much as it may appear. McDermott, 48, was one of Australias finest fast bowlers, claiming 291 wickets in 71 Test before a chronic knee injury ended his career. He is one of just four Australians to have taken more than 200 Test and one-day wickets along with Glenn McGrath, Brett Lee and Mitchell Johnson. McDermott received enormous praise for his work with the national team and was a significant loss to its support network. McDermott claimed he would be taking the same approach this time. It was the philosophy of weve got to get the ball swinging consistently, he said. I though Ryno (Ryan Harris) in particular did a good job in England and Sids (Peter Siddle) bowled pretty well also. Weve got to get our attack performing across the board like it did 18 months ago. Thats my job, to get us back there knocking teams over regularly or if not grinding out Tests. It was very hard to watch the last 12 months away from the guys who Ive become very close to as friends and mentor. It was very hard to watch us get beaten in the Ashes.
