David Saker has been named as Australia's new full-time assistant coach, taking over the role vacated by Craig McDermott earlier this year.

Saker, who served as England's bowling coach from 2010 to 2015, is also expected to step in as Australia's acting head coach at some point next year to give Darren Lehmann a break, as occurred when Justin Langer stood in during the recent tri-series in the Caribbean.

South African great Allan Donald is acting as Australia's bowling coach during the tour of Sri Lanka, which has just begun, and Saker will take over in time for the one-day tour of South Africa in September-October.
