Sydney - Former Test and one-day international Stuart Law was on Friday appointed to replace Darren Lehmann as coach of Queensland and Brisbane Heat for the next three seasons.

Law, 44, will fill the dual roles left vacant by the elevation of Lehmann to the Australian coaching position at the start of the Ashes series in England.

Queensland Cricket said Law will commence duties later this month once he has finished his commitments at the Cricket Australia Centre of Excellence where he has been High Performance coach since last year.

Law played one Test and 54 one-day internationals for Australia and 367 first-class matches in a career spanning 20 years, scoring 27 080 runs.

He played 16 seasons with Queensland and ranks third on the state's all-time runs-scoring list with 9 920 behind Martin Love (11 224) and Jimmy Maher (9 933).

While Law only made one Test appearance against Sri Lanka in 1995, he also enjoyed a prolific career with the bat for Essex, Lancashire and Derbyshire.

"I'm very excited to again be involved with cricket in Queensland, which is where I got my start," Law said.

"Hopefully I can help the next generation to achieve all they can in the game and play it at the highest level possible."
