Australia axe Mike Young as fielding coach
Mike Young, the former American baseballer, is believed to have been sacked as Australia's fielding coach. Cricket Australia has not confirmed the decision, which is thought to have been made before the implementation of the Don Argus-led review into Australia's performance.
Young travelled with the squad during the World Cup but did not join the players on last month's trip to Bangladesh. Wade Seccombe, the former Queensland wicketkeeper who has coached at the Centre of Excellence over the past year, was on hand in Dhaka as the fielding coach for the three one-day internationals in April.
A former minor-league baseball manager in the United States, Young was made Australia's fielding coach during the tenure of John Buchanan, and was often seen patrolling the boundary rope while the Australians were in the field.
He was involved with the Australian side for most of the past decade, and in 2009 also consulted for India. However, at times he has also returned to America, and during 2005 he managed a baseball team in Illinois.
