Melbourne:

Australia's cricket team, on the verge of losing the Ashes series to England, will soon have a new team manager - an expatriate Australian whose current position is operations manager for England's rugby team.

Cricket Australia said on Monday that Gavin Dovey will take over as team manager after the ICC World Cup in April. Dovey will replace Steve Bernard, who is retiring from the role he has held since 1998.

Previously, Dovey worked for the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority before moving to a role managing anti-doping with the England rugby union (RFU).

England has a commanding lead after two days of the fourth cricket Test at Melbourne. A win would ensure it retains the Ashes.
