Australia's Centre of Excellence in Brisbane will be expanded with a A$26m state-of-the-art athlete centre. The facility, which will be built at Allan Border Field, will offer virtual reality tools for decision making and biomechanical equipment for technique analysis, research and skill development.

The refurbished home of the Centre of Excellence programme, formerly known as the Academy, will also have sports medicine, injury rehabilitation and physical preparation units. James Sutherland, Cricket Australia's chief executive, said the facility would boost the country's teams in their pursuit of the world's No. 1 rankings.

"We believe that this will help us achieve this vision in the long-term future," he said. The federal government has provided a $17.5m grant for the revamp while the Queensland government has given $5m, with Cricket Australia contributing the rest.

The Centre of Excellence men's programme began at the Australian Cricket Academy in Adelaide in 1988 and has produced 65 national representatives. More than 400 players, coaches and support staff, including those from the women's elite squad, attended events at the venue last year.
