Wellington, May 15 : New Zealand Cricket board on Wednesday named former batsman Peter Fulton as their new batting coach post the 2019 World Cup.
Fulton, who has played 84 international games across formats for New Zealand, will replace Craig McMillan as New Zealand's batting coach after the World Cup ends in England in July.
McMillan is stepping down after holding the role for nearly five years.
Fulton expressed his happiness over the selection and said, ''Like many Kiwis, I’ve watched and admired the way the team’s gone about their business in recent years and so it’s pretty special to be invited back into the set-up''.
''We’ve obviously got some really talented batsmen in the country and I’m looking forward to working with them to see how they can continue improving their games'', he added.
Fulton's contract will expire after the conclusion of the World T20 next year in Australia. (UNI)
