  • Print


AFP, Wellington :
Former international Craig McMillan announced Monday he will step down as New Zealand batting coach after this year's World Cup in England and Wales.
McMillan said the conclusion of the showpiece tournament was the right time to move on after five years in the job, including helping New Zealand reach the final of the 2015 World Cup. "It's been a privilege to be able to work with the likes of Brendon McCullum, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor day-in and day-out and to see the records they've accomplished has been very satisfying," he said.
