With two most important ICC tournaments lying ahead, it was just the right time for the White Ferns to welcome a new team coach and who better than Bob Carter. His term with the women’s team will end after the completion of ICC Women’s World Cup 2021.
Bob Carter, two times New Zealand’s assistant coach, who was also the interim coach for White Ferns in the recently concluded Australia tour, will now also be heading the team in their campaign of three ODIs and five T20Is against South Africa which is to be held in Australia.
“I see a lot of potential in this particular group of cricketers. We have a good blend of youth and experience that we can build from and I feel very positive about this next chapter of White Ferns cricket,” Carter said in an official statement.
“It is an exciting time to come on board with two big world tournaments on the horizon. We have the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia in February next year and the women’s World Cup 2021 that we are hosting here in New Zealand – it’s a big couple of seasons coming up,” he added.
We are delighted to have Bob signed on and working with our top female cricketers. The recent Women’s MOU has been a good development for the women’s game but with the added funding and support comes an added professional responsibility,” Head of High Performance, Bryan Stronach said.
