Di Venuto takes over at Surrey

22 February 2016 | Callum Dent

Michael Di Venuto has left his position in the Australia set-up in favour of becoming Surrey’s new head coach.

The 42-year-old, Australia’s assistant coach and lead batting coach, has signed a three-year deal to succeed Graham Ford at the Kia Oval.

Di Venuto said: “It has been a huge honour and privilege to have worked with the Australian team but the chance to come to a club of the size and potential of Surrey as head coach was too big an opportunity for me to turn down.

“As someone who has always enjoyed the county game, I have followed Surrey’s progress over the last couple of years and look forward to working with this talented squad of players.”
