Chris Rogers Named as New Victoria Head Coach

Former Australian opener Chris Rogers will now work as the head coach of Victoria until 2022. 

For the past 10 months, the position of being Victoria’s head coach has been vacated by Andrew McDonald. After McDonald left, Victoria was left with Lachie Stevens as an interim coach but he did not take up the role on a long-term basis. Now, former Australian player Chris Rogers has been officially named as the team’s head coach up until 2022. 

Before Rogers has been able to land himself on the said spot, he first had a competition with his teammate Brad Hodge and another former player Michael Klinger. Still, it was Rogers’ coaching experience in the U-19 World Cup which may have made him chosen for the position. 

As per Rogers, ‘This side's won six of the last 12 Shield titles. So there's an expectation from fans, stakeholders that this team is successful, so I fully intend to continue that approach’. 

‘But there's also a focus on developing players. Victoria clearly wants to have a higher representation playing for Australia and for me I'd love to get a few players into that Australian side, and be permanent fixtures, a bit like Aaron Finch. That's the goal. It's not always easy to balance that but you've just got to find the best way you can’, he added.

With Rogers being in the team, he had already received some words of praise from Cricket Victoria’s cricket chief Shaun Graf who believes that he will be a great addition to the team. To further understand cricket, check out Betwala.
