Bob Carter has been appointed head coach of the New Zealand women’s team until the end of the 2021 ICC Women’s World Cup scheduled to be held in New Zealand.
Carter, who has served twice as an assistant coach for the men’s team, was the interim coach of White Ferns for his most recent tour of Australia and had been working with the team during the winter in his role as a high-performance coach.

“I see much potential in this particular group of cricketers,” Carter said in an official statement issued by New Zealand Cricket (NZC).
“We have a good combination of youth and experience from which we can build, and I feel very positive about this next chapter of White Ferns cricket.”
New Zealand women play South Africa in three ODI and five T20s this summer before embarking on a T20 World Cup campaign in Australia.
Carter has already officially started in his new position and will have his first chance to assemble the White Ferns team at a training camp that will begin on September 22 in Lincoln.
