Former English Cricketer Andy Moles Appointed as New Zealand Coach

Former cricketer of Warwickshire, Andy Moles, has recently been appointed as the new coach of New Zealand national cricket team who are currently touring Australia in a two-match test series. Moles, who previously coached Kenya and Scotland in international level, would take over the job from outgoing coach John Bracewell, who became New Zealand coach in 2003. From next season, Bracewell will coach Gloucestershire, an English county team. Andy Moles have earlier coaching experience as he coached Northern Districts.

Andy Moles never represented England in international cricket, but the batsman played for Warwickshire with sheer success.

Bloomberg reported:

“Andy has an outstanding coaching background,” Justin Vaughan, New Zealand Cricket’s chief executive officer, said in the statement. “He has made a real impact at Northern Districts over the past two seasons and also brings more than 15 years experience coaching at international level.”

John Bracewell had his contract with New Zealand board until 2009 will now be repaled by Moles. Bracewell may not be that much happy to see the current condition of New Zealand team. New Zealand currently stands 7th in Test and 5th in ODI ranking. Under his guidance, New Zealand won 13 tests, lost 19 and drew 8 test matches. ODI record of New Zealand during John Bracewell’s tenure looks better with 62 wins against 46 defeats and 1 no result. However, the twenty20 record is worst with 10 defeats against 5 wins. Now, let us see if Andy Moles can do better than what his predecessor did with New Zealand team.
