Andrew McDonald was named national coach by Australia’s top cricket authority on Wednesday, two months after Justin Langer unexpectedly left the country.

McDonald, 40, was given a four-year contract as head coach after getting praise for his work as interim coach following Langer’s unexpected exit on February 5 that surprised the cricket world.

In Australia, where cricket is a vital part of the national character and the team’s exploits enthral most of the country, he is taking on one of the most high-profile responsibilities.
