New Zealand Cricket accepts resignation of coach Moles

Posted By: Staff

Wellington, Oct 24 (ANI): New Zealand Cricket confirmed on Saturday that coach Andy Moles has resigned after a review which did not reflect favourably on him, especially from his players.

The NZC said they had reached an amicable agreement with Moles at mediation on Friday, the terms of which are confidential to the parties.

"Andy has made a significant contribution to cricket in New Zealand, including the recent success of the Black Caps team in making the final of the Champions Trophy," Justin Vaughan, chief executive of New Zealand Cricket, said.

Moles said in a statement: "It has been a great privilege to have been the coach of the Black Caps and, while I am sad to be leaving, I wish the team every success in the future."

The Black Caps won't have a coach for their upcoming limited overs series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates with Moles' replacement not being named in time.

The NZC said with the Black Caps due to leave on Tuesday for one-day and Twenty20 matches against Pakistan, no coach would be in place by then.

The remainder of the Black Caps support staff would be travelling to the UAE with captain Daniel Vettori seemingly set to take on even more responsibilities for the short tour, Stuff.co.nz reported.

New Zealand faces a busy schedule at home with test series against Pakistan before Christmas followed by tours by Bangladesh and Australia. (ANI)
