Central Districts coach Dermot Reeve will join the BLACKCAPS squad as a bowling coach for the two Twenty20 matches against the West Indies later this week.
BLACKCAPS coach Andy Moles said Reeve’s reputation for flair and innovation – and his experience in international limited overs competition – would add strength to the team’s build-up.
“Dermot's experience as a coach and as a top level bowler will bring extra depth and focus to our preparation for these games. He is a good example of us bringing in talented coaches to broaden and stimulate new thinking with our players.”
Reeve played for England as an allrounder between 1991 and 1996, including three tests – all against New Zealand – and 29 one day internationals.
Reeve was appointed Central Districts coach earlier this year, and has led the Stags to the top of the Sate Championship rankings at the halfway point of the 2008/09 season.
