Bowling coach Shane Jurgensen will stay on with the BLACKCAPS for the full tour of India later this year rather than returning to New Zealand following the T20I series as initially planned.

The rearrangement of Jurgensen’s winter touring commitments came about after his scheduled departure on Friday was delayed as a result of visa complications caused by the recent nationwide lockdown.

He was due to link up with the current BLACKCAPS squad in Pakistan to take over the reins for the five-game T20I series starting in Lahore next weekend.

Instead, Jurgensen will now depart directly for the ICC T20 World Cup in the UAE in early October, alongside regular BLACKCAPS coaches Gary Stead and Luke Ronchi.

The silver lining is that Jurgensen is now able to stay on for the two Test tour of India in late November/early December, rather than returning home as previously planned – in accordance with NZC’s player and staff welfare protocols.

Current BLACKCAPS coaches Glenn Pocknall (head), Graeme Aldridge (bowling) and Tilan Samaraweera (batting) will continue to lead the touring team in Pakistan, while the previously vacant bowling coach role for the India Test series no longer needs to be filled with Jurgensen on board.
