Former Sri Lanka batsman Thilan Samaraweera is working with some Australian Test players ahead of their tour to Sri Lanka. The role is part of his brief consulting stint at Australia's National Cricket Centre in Brisbane.
Samaraweera has been hired as a consultant for the academy from June to August.
Though his role is not specifically geared towards preparing Australian Test players for the forthcoming tour, he has already begun to work with Adam Voges, Shaun Marsh, and Jackson Bird, as they prepare for the tour.
