John’s Story

John Buchanan is regarded as one of the most successful international sports coaches in history. From this background, he translates the deep insights of peak performance on the sports field into winning behaviours and actions in the business arena.

Early Beginnings

John began his cricketing career playing for Queensland in 1978–79. He began his coaching career in England where he was player/coach/professional for Oldham in Central Lancashire league as well as Cambridgeshire in Minor Counties 1978 and 1979. Oldham won the League and Cup double in 1979 which was the first time in over 40 years.

Prior to his appointment as Australian head coach, he had five successful years as the coach of Queensland, during which time they won two Sheffield Shield titles, including the first in the state’s history in 1994–95, and two Mercantile Mutual Cup titles. He also coached Middlesex in 1998.

Coaching Australia

John was appointed as Australian men’s national coach in October 1999 and his results were very impressive, helping steer the team to unprecedented success.

Along with former captain Ricky Ponting, John led the side to numerous successes, including a world-record 16 consecutive Test match victories, 21 consecutive ODI wins twice and an undefeated World Cup winning record of 23 wins and 2 World Cups 2003 and 2007.

Included in this phenomenal record was the 2002–03 Ashes domination, winning both series 4–1, the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup in South Africa, the 2004 tour of India, in which Australia hadn’t won a series there in thirty-six years.

In late 2006 he helped the team to their first ever ICC Champions Trophy victory, after four previously failed attempts and followed this with a 5–0 whitewash win in the 2006–07 Ashes Series, the first since the 1920–21 Series. In 2007 his team won their third consecutive world cup. In a very traditional world, his methods have sometimes been seen as unorthodox but former captain Ponting has credited him as being one of the important reasons why Australia completed their World Cup hat trick of wins.
