New Delhi:

Assistant coach David Saker will take over as coach of the Australian team for their one-day international tour of India later this year, allowing head coach Darren Lehmann to take a break.

Cricket Australia has been gracious enough in the past to fill in for coach Dareen Lehmann, who recovered from deep vein thrombosis last year after being hospitalised for the condition.

"It's a huge honour to be even considered to be a coach of an Australian team, and to be given the opportunity is fantastic," Saker, who has also worked as England's bowling coach, was quoted as saying on Cricket Australia's website.

"I'm going to look forward to it a lot, and my ambition is to coach Australia."
