Vettori ready to take more responsibility in coaches-transition

Adelaide: New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori has said he is ready to take more responsibility as New Zealand undergo a transitional phase as far as their coach is concerned – Andy Moles takes over from John Bracewell at the end of the Test series against Australia.

New Zealand Cricket on Tuesday announced the appointment of Northern Districts coach Andy Moles as the man to replace John Bracewell, who will be leaving the team after his five-year stint as coach.

Vettori welcomed Moles to the set up, and said he would do his best to make life easy for him in the dressing room. He said, “Guys chop and change coaches a lot with domestic stuff, and Indian Premier League (IPL) and county cricket, so they should be used to it and hopefully he makes an instant impression.

“It’s my responsibility to take on a greater workload just while Andy’s settling in and get him through those initial stages.

“He’s coached for a long time and coached international sides so he knows how to do it. I don’t think it’ll be daunting for him but he’ll lean towards me a lot because we know each other pretty well.

“I don’t see myself taking on more of a role at trainings, just making sure that transition period is as smooth as possible, and that is by performing on the park, so we can’t let this short turnaround be an excuse for a performance.”
