Shawn Bradstreet joins NSW Blues coaching staff

In the latest cricket news, former NSW skipper and allrounder Shawn Bradstreet will rejoin the New South Wale Blues as a Coaching Consultant this season, with pre-season training due to start next week.

Bradstreet, who has been Assistant Coach for the Big Bash League side – Sydney Thunder for the last six years and has renewed for a further two, returns to the Blues camp to primarily work with the fast-bowling unit.

Following his brief stint with the Blues during the back end of the 2020/21 season, he will assist bowling coach Andre Adams in skill development and also provide his services in all facets of the game.

“I’m pumped. Playing for NSW and captaining the state was one of the biggest honours I had in my playing career and to be back in the set up to help nurture the current players through their times, is something I’ve wanted to do at some stage in my coaching career,” Bradstreet said.

“Shawn has been an important and highly respected member of the coaching staff at the Sydney Thunder in recent seasons and is extremely passionate about joining the Blues coaching group for this season,” Klinger said.

“It’s our great pleasure at Cricket NSW to welcome someone of Shawn’s calibre and character onto the Blues coaching staff.”
