Mascarenhas appointed Black Caps’ bowling coach
New Zealand have appointed former England allrounder Dimitri Mascarenhas as their bowling coach on a full-time basis after he had an interim role after the World Cup concluded in March.
Mascarenhas, who was appointed when Shane Bond stepped down, has signed a two-year deal after impressing the New Zealand management in the Test series against England, which the Black Caps fought back in to draw one-all.
New Zealand Cricket's Head of Cricket, Lindsay Crocker said: "Dimitri has impressed in the short time he's been with the Black Caps and we're delighted he's accepted the offer to continue working with the side.
"Both coach Mike Hesson and captain Brendon McCullum have been pleased with his contribution on the tour and have watched him develop excellent working relationships with the bowling group."
Mascarenhas said: "I'm very much looking forward to being part of this organisation and playing my part in helping us progress further.
"The Black Caps are blessed with some outstanding bowlers and it was a privilege to be involved with the side during the Test win in Leeds.
"My immediate aim is to assist the incumbents' continued development and to help maintain a healthy depth in New Zealand Cricket's elite bowling stocks."
The 37 year-old Mascarenhas played in 20 ODIs and 14 T20s for England between 2007 and 2009.
