In what comes as a huge boost for the Australians, World Cup-winning skipper, Steve Waugh will be mentoring the team in 2019 Ashes series which commences from August 1. It will be a six-week tour and five Tests will be played in the UK.
Australia presently have Ricky Ponting in their coaching staff. He is there to assist the team in the World Cup and the team will be helped by Waugh in the Ashes.
"With the Test series we are very fortunate to have Steve Waugh who is, obviously, a legend and is going to be great service for myself as a leader and captain," Paine told Nine News in Bristol, where he is with the Australia A squad.
"I think to have someone like him around during a Test series is going to be great for our whole group. I know I will be trying to bounce off him as much as I can.
"For guys like myself and (Steve) Smith and (David) Warner who are quite experienced, it will be great. It's also going to be great for some of our younger players as well," he added.
