Sydney:  Former one-day international opener Michael Di Venuto was on Friday appointed Australia's new batting coach ahead of their tour to India, replacing Stuart Law.

The 39-year-old will quit as assistant coach for the Tasmanian Tigers and Hobart Hurricanes to take up his new role, Cricket Australia said.

Australian coach Mickey Arthur said Di Venuto brought a wealth of knowledge with him, along with sound coaching credentials.

"We wanted a batting coach who was working within Australian cricket and who had also represented Australia as a player and Michael certainly brings those two aspects to the table," he said.

He replaces Law, who held the interim position for the past five Tests after fellow former Test batsman Justin Langer stepped down to coach Western Australia.

Dean Jones also held the position briefly during the recent one-day series against Sri Lanka.

Australia play two warm-up matches before the first Test in Chennai on February 22, followed by Tests in Hyderabad, Mohali and Delhi.

Di Venuto's appointment follows Dennis Lillee being drafted in this week to provide guidance and coaching advice to the pace bowlers.
