The Kiwis are keen to pose a serious challenge in the upcoming edition of the T20 World Cup. For that purpose, they have been building a solid team. Some of their top players are looking in good shape and are ready to go. They will want to pose a serious challenge in the upcoming competition. Keeping that in mind, the New Zealand side has now recruited a legend of the game for them.
Shane Bond has joined the coaching staff of the Kiwis, ahead of the T20 World Cup. He is a fourth coach for the upcoming competition and the T20I series against India that follows. Recently seen in the role of a Pundit on TV for the World Test Championship Final, the fast bowler has landed this new job now.
New Zealand has a good young team at present, which looks really good on paper. They will be keen on being serious contenders for the upcoming tournament. The Kiwis will want to fight hard for a place in the final four and possibly lift the title. They will be confident after winning the World Test Championship, though the format is totally different.
There will surely be a challenge from a lot of in-form sides, who will want to fight for a win. However, the balance of the Kiwi side is really good too. They can be a serious contender for the T20 World Cup if they play good cricket. Consistency will also be a key in such a tournament.
It will be interesting to see what the impact of Shane Bond on this team is. Can he help them really improve and add more quality to their side? He is surely an inspiration and a legend of the game. That could bring more positivity to this already-confident team. It will be interesting to see how they play in the T20 World Cup now.
