Auckland: Jan 24, 2012

 

New Zealand coach John Wright is unsure about his plans to continue as the national coach after his term ends in August, 2012.

 

Wright was quoted by ICC’s website as saying, “I haven’t decided yet. I’ve been thinking about it but nobody has talked about it yet to be honest.  I’ll have a look at things.

 

“When I was coaching in the India job it was always a bit of a job where you’d just say, ‘let’s see where we go to from here’.

 

“It’s the sort of life where you can’t ever look too far ahead. You plan ahead in terms of the team but let’s see where we are at and how things are traveling later in the summer. There are no firm decisions in that area yet.”

 

Wright replaced Mark Greatbatch as the Kiwi coach in 2012 and has been successful in his tenure. New Zealand reaching semi-final reach in the ICC’s 2011 World Cup and beating Australia at home in a Test match have been some of his major accomplishments.

 

Wright is happy that during his tenure as New Zealand coach, he has proved his detractors wrong  who opined that he was a laidback coach.

 

He said, “The one thing I’ve found is that I’ve really enjoyed working with the boys.”I think they had a few doubts about me and it was probably vice versa when I came on board. But I’ve really enjoyed it.”
