Moles to be new Black Caps coach

12:16 pm on 25 November 2008

The former English county batsman Andy Moles will take over as coach of the New Zealand cricket side.

After finishing his playing career with warwickshire, Moles coached Kenya and Scotland before taking over at Northern Districts.

The appointment to replace John Bracwell has been a drawn out affair with a number of candidates deciding against taking up the job.

Bracewell was contracted through to April, but this week's test in Adelaide will be his last with Moles taking over for the West Indies series which starts in a fortnight.
