Summary

  • WELLINGTON, Aug 15 AAP – New Zealand Cricket has stuck with a proven recipe by appointing Gary Stead its new Black Caps coach.

  • Stead guided Canterbury to four domestic titles during five years in charge, including three Plunket Shield first-class crowns.

  • Stead’s contract gives him the flexibility to bring in specialist coaching support when deemed necessary, particularly in the T20 format.
