Mumbai:The visiting Australian team's assistant coach and cricket analyst Tim Nielsen said on Tuesday computer analysis of the games had become a vital part of his squad's preparations for Tests and One-Day Internationals.

Nielsen, who has played first class cricket and represented South Australia in his country's domestic cricket in over 100 games, told reporters here that younger players gravitate more towards computer analysis.

"I am here to help coach John (Buchanan) in the training track and also in helping players prepare physically. I am also the computer analyst. At team meetings I am responsible for putting the vision (of games played). We use it a lot, it's very critical (in preparations)," he said.

"(Opener) Justin Langer uses the data and vision quite a bit as also Michael Clarke. The computer stuff is a lot more common to the younger players," said Nielsen who has also assisted Aussie great Greg Chappell during his coaching stint with South Australia.
