“We’re delighted to have Pete come on board after the World Cup and are confident he will be a good fit for our environment. We had a thorough process and utilized our senior players to help assess all the candidates. Pete obviously has a good understanding of batting, but he also demonstrated a clear vision for helping our elite batsmen. He’s shown he has the coaching skills through his work with the New Zealand Under 19s and our winter training squads, while we know from his playing days that he will certainly add to our team culture.” – Gary Stead New Zealand Head Coach
