Hauritz will host coach and player development sessions in four Queensland cities, starting at Mackay on Saturday.

He will move on to Townsville from July 1-2, before returning to his hometown of Hervey Bay on July 3-4, where he will make presentations about up to date philosophies, tactics and trends specific to spin bowlers across the various formats.

He will finish his tour at the Sunshine Coast on July 5.
