NZ coach under fire for taking break

New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has defended the under-fire national team’s head coach Gary Stead, who is drawing flak for taking a break in the middle of the ongoing home series against India, saying his “week off was planned six months ago”. Stead is under criticism for taking a holiday at a time when the Black Caps are enduring a form slump. Following a 0-3 Test series hiding in Australia, New Zealand were whitewashed 0-5 by India in the Twenty20 series on home soil.

But NZC chief executive David White has supported Stead, stating that the coach’’ mid-season break during the ongoing threematch ODI series was preplanned. “Of any sport in New Zealand, cricket has the most demands for time,” White told reporters.
