Description:
David James Saker (born 29 May 1966 in Melbourne, Victoria) is a former Australian first-class cricketer who played for the Victorian Bushrangers and then the Tasmanian Tigers later on in his career. He is currently the fast bowling coach for the England cricket team.

Playing career

A right-arm fast-medium bowler, Saker made his first class debut in the 1994-95 season. He spent six years with the Bushrangers before accepting an offer to join the Tasmanian side at the start of the 2000-01 season. As a veteran in a fairly young side he was named as their Player of the Year for 2001-02. Saker was also a handy batsman, making four first class half centuries, even opening the batting at times for the Bushrangers at limited-overs level. He retired in 2002-03 with 247 wickets to his name at 30.10.

Coaching

In 2004 he became an assistant coach at Victoria under Greg Shipperd.

On 8th April, 2010, Saker was appointed as the fast bowling coach of the England cricket team, replacing the departing Ottis Gibson. After Saker's key role in the team winning the 2010-11 Ashes series, he was handed a new three year contract.
