Former New Zealand and Australia wicketkeeper-batsman Luke Ronchi has been appointed as the batting coach of the New Zealand cricket team ahead of the restart of the international season. The wicketkeeper will assume charges starting the upcoming home series against West Indies. He was part of the supporting staff of the team during the ICC World Cup 2019.


Ronchi expressed his excitement at the prospect of joining the Blackcaps team in a full-time role after spending some time with the team in the past season. “I’m absolutely pumped. I’ve really enjoyed being back with the team in recent seasons and it’s exciting to be given the opportunity full-time this summer.

Discussing the role at his hands and the kind of development he would like to bring in the Blackcaps’ batsmen, Ronchi said, 

“Getting the chance to continue working with our batsmen is a great honor and I’m looking forward to seeing how I can help improve their games and best prepare them to perform at the highest level.”

Ronchi was born in New Zealand but made his international debut for Australia in 2008 and went on to play four one-dayers and 3 T20Is. He came back to international cricket with the Blackcaps in 2003 and played four Tests, 81 ODIs and 30 T20s.
