New Zealand Cricket announces Head coach for Women's Cricket

New Zealand cricket has announced Dean Brownlie as head coach for New Zealand Women’s cricket team. Dean Brownlie who retired at the end of the 2019-20 season with a total of 14 Test caps and 21 white-ball caps, was New Zealand men’s interim batting coach in March 2022 when the side played the Netherlands at home. More recently, he served as a network coach at Northern Districts and also joined the Black Caps coaching staff for the T20 World Cup in Australia.

Former Australian first-class cricketer Craig Howard has been appointed as spin coach for New Zealand Women’s and will work closely with spinners Amelia Kerr, Eden Carson and Fran Jonas. He has been involved with the White Ferns on a tour-by-tour basis in the past, and will be with the side for the home series against Bangladesh and then stay on at least until next year’s T20 World Cup in South Africa in February. He has previously been a spin consultant with Cricket Australia, South Australia and Adelaide Strikers, where he worked with Nathan Lyon, Georgia Wareham and Sophie Molineux.
