Former New Zealand batsman Peter Fulton is all set to take over as the national side’s batting coach after the World Cup.


Having played 84 international games across formats for the Black Caps, Fulton will take over from Craig McMillan and his contract will be till the end of the World T20 to be held in Australia next year.


New Zealand coach Gary Stead expressed his satisfaction with the decision, “We’re delighted to have Pete come on board after the World Cup and are confident he will be a good fit for our environment.


“We had a thorough process and utilised our senior players to help assess all the candidates.


“Pete obviously has a good understanding of batting, but he also demonstrated a clear vision for helping our elite batsmen.


“He’s shown he has the coaching skills through his work with the New Zealand Under 19s and our winter training squads, while we know from his playing days that he will certainly add to our team culture,” added Stead, whose contract will also end with Fulton’s.


The duo have a history as Fulton made his First Class debut in 2000-01 at Canterbury under the captaincy of Stead.


The 40-year-old who last played for New Zealand in 2014 said he was honoured to be able able to work with the squad.  


“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,” he said.


“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.”
