Geoff Allott steps down

6:52 pm on 1 November 2010

New Zealand Cricket's General Manager Geoff Allott will step down at the end of the month, making him the first casualty of the Black Caps' unprecedented series loss to Bangladesh.

After two years in the job, Allott says last month's whitewash in Bangladesh shows the NZC had to rethink its strategy and he was not part of the plan.

He says it became clear during his work on a long-term high-performance strategy that a different allocation of resources will be required in the future, and he's effectively restructured himself out of a job.

Allott will leave New Zealand Cricket at the end of November.
