Dimitri Mascarenhas appointed New Zealand bowling coach
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Former England international Dimitri Mascarenhas has been appointed bowling coach of the New Zealand cricket team, replacing Shane Bond who will leave the role after the current World Cup.
The 37-year-old Mascarenhas, who played 20 one-day internationals, is currently coaching New Zealand’s Otago province and previously coached in the English county championship, the Indian Premier League and Australia’s Big Bash League.
He said Bond “has done an extremely good job with his bowling unit; they have operated with real pace, skill and tactical awareness. During this World Cup they have been phenomenal and I am looking forward to working with those guys to keep developing them and helping them achieve success on the international stage.”
