A fast bowler who had limited success for Tasmania in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Ali de Winter threw himself into coaching after his retirement. Initially a regional game development manager in Tasmania, he then moved to Western Australia to work as a zone coaching manager, before relocating to Dhaka in 2005 to become the head coach of the National Cricket Academy and the Bangladesh Under-19s. He returned to Tasmania in 2007 to become assistant coach to Tim Coyle and helped the Tigers to two one-day titles and a Sheffield Shield over the next five years. One of his most notable achievements was rebuilding the bowling action of Ben Hilfenhaus, who had struggled with a knee injury, and returning him to his status as a dangerous international bowler. Having narrowly missed out to Craig McDermott on the job as Australia's bowling coach in 2011, de Winter was appointed the the role in 2012 after McDermott's resignation.
