Hobart:The Australian cricket team will have a new strength and conditioning coach, following the appointment of Justin Cordy to replace Jock Campbell.

Cricket Australia said Cordy, who is currently employed by Australian Football League (AFL) club Western Bulldogs in Melbourne, will start work with the Australian team in the next four weeks.

Cordy formerly worked as fitness adviser to the Bangladesh Cricket Board and was the fitness coach to the Australian team in the recent International Rules Series against Ireland.

Cricket Australia's General Manager of Operations Michael Brown said Cordys experience and formal qualifications in physiotherapy and exercise science would be important in managing the training of the Australian players ahead of the next Ashes series against England in 2006-07 and the 2007 World Cup defence.
