New Zealand Cricket has formed a subcommittee to determine whether John Bracewell should be retained as the national coach. Bracewell’s contract expires next month and John Wright, the former India coach, has expressed interest in being involved in the country’s cricket.
Wright withdrew his application for the head of Australia’s Centre of Excellence in Brisbane and is likely to feature highly in discussions for the role in his home country. The subcommittee formed by Justin Vaughan, the new NZC chief executive, met on Tuesday to review the position and outline a process to appoint the coach.
Stephen Fleming and Craig McMillan have publicly supported a contract extension for Bracewell and Wright believes his former team-mate will keep the job. Bracewell guided New Zealand to the semi-finals of the World Cup but the team received a shake-up after the tournament when Stephen Fleming stepped down as one-day captain.
Ric Charlesworth, an Olympic gold-medal winning hockey coach and NZC’s high performance manager, is on the subcommittee that includes Vaughan, Stephen Boock, Lindsay Crocker and the players’ association representative Heath Mills. No date has been set to make a decision on Bracewell’s future.More on:coach, Craig McMillan, Cricket, John Bracewell, New Zealand, Stephen Fleming
