Sydney - Former Tasmania paceman Ali de Winter was on Friday named as Australia's new bowling coach, replacing Craig McDermott who quit in May citing the conflicting demands of constant touring with family life.

Cricket Australia team performance general manager Pat Howard said de Winter beat a wide field of international candidates, including Pakistan pace great Waqar Younis.

"We feel Ali has skills that will complement those of Mickey Arthur, Justin Langer and Steve Rixon and is well equipped to pick up on Craig McDermott's previous good work," Howard said, referring to the Australian coaching staff.

Currently head coach of the Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League side and assistant coach of Tasmania, de Winter said he intended to keep things simple with Australia's fast bowlers.

"I don't think it is too complicated -- it's about having a strong work ethic, building good relationships and doing things like attacking the top of off-stump in Test cricket," he said.

"I am particularly excited to get this chance, particularly now as Australia has such a deep pool of fast bowling talent with 10-12 young bowlers featuring at the moment."
