Sridharan Sriram, a former all-around player for India, has chosen to abandon his position as Australia's spin bowling coach to concentrate on his responsibilities with the IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore. The change occurs before Australia visits India the following year.


Since 2015, Sriram, who participated in eight ODIs between 2000 and 2004, has been a member of the Australian coaching staff.


Before being hired as the spin bowling coach for the Australia A team in 2016 under the then-head coach Darren Lehmann, he was a member of the Australian A team on a tour of India.


In a statement, Sriram said, "I have decided to leave my current position as an assistant coach of the Australian men's team after being on the road for six years.


"As long as the squad has time to prepare for two World Cups and the World Test Championship, I believe now is a good time to act. Working with different forms, like World Cups and Ashes, has been a terrific experience for me, and I've learned so much."


However, according to cricket.com.au, Sriram quit his employment to concentrate on his IPL work.


According to cricket.com.au, Sriram, 46, has chosen to concentrate on his coaching work with the Royal Challengers Bangalore and spend more time with his family in Chennai, where he is located.


Sriram collaborated closely with players like Nathan Lyon, Adam Zampa, Mitchell Swepson, Glenn Maxwell, and Marnus Labuschagne while he was a member of the Australian team.


In the 2017 Pune Test, he is infamous for aiding Steve O'Keefe's return with astounding stats of 12/70.


In May, Australia hired former New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori to serve as their bowling coach.


Sriram expressed gratitude to his head coaches Darren Lehmann, Justin Langer, and Andrew McDonald as well as his captains Steve Smith, Tim Paine, Aaron Finch, and Pat Cummins for their support.


"For receiving me with open arms and making me feel like a member of the team, I'd also like to thank Ben Oliver, Brian McFadyen, for the players, and the staff. I got involved because of Greg Chappell, Troy Cooley, Pat Howard, and Marcus Stoinis, among others. I send my best wishes to the team and the coaches for the future "Added he
