Cricket Australia has decided to tap the Boston Red Sox for tips on uncovering new talent with selector Greg Chappell heading to the United States at the weekend.
Chappell, who is also CA's National Talent Manager, leads a group of Australian cricket officials flying to Florida for a week-long reconnaissance exercise.
While there they will meet with Boston Red Sox and University of Texas representatives on a range of topics covering talent identification and player development, CA said.
"In order to continually improve cricket's high performance pathway system, the focus of the tour is to explore best practice being used by two world-leading organisations," it said.
As well as talent identification, they will be focusing on recruitment strategies, player preparation, opposition analysis and team culture.
