WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) – New Zealand’s national selection manager Bruce Edgar, who was one of the men behind the team’s recent strong performances, is stepping down because his role is being restructured.

The former Test opening batsman, along with New Zealand coach Mike Hesson and captain Brendon McCullum, were credited as the keys to New Zealand’s recent rise in One-Day and Test cricket. New Zealand’s runner-up finish at the Cricket World Cup lifted them to third in the One-Day rankings.

New Zealand Cricket is changing Edgar’s position from a part-time to a full-time talent identification role to capitalise on the World Cup success.

Head of Cricket Lindsay Crocker said “Bruce felt he was unable to accept the revised role and terms and while it’s a decision we regret, it’s also one we respect.”
