I'm ready to be head coach: Shane Bond

Shane Bond has been assistant coach for seven years

Bond, Shane Bond is now ready to take over responsibilities as a head coach. Bond, known to be one of the fastest bowler in his time, has been donning deputy coach duties with New Zealand for seven years now. Bond will now serve as head coach of the New Zealand A team that is coming to India for a two First-Class match and five limited-overs series starting September 23.

The Christchurch-born man believes that a move from bowling coach to head coach would be the next logical step in his personal development and he is keen to take up that challenge.

Bond has been involved with coaching for the past seven years which has seen him take up the bowling coach roles with the New Zealand cricket team, Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Mumbai Indians and Big Bash League (BBL) outfit Brisbane Heat.

The 42-year-old has recently been given charge of the New Zealand A team who will fly out to India on Tuesday. "I've got great opportunities with Brisbane (in Big Bash League) and the IPL and I really enjoy them".

Bond refused to be drawn into speculation linking him to the role of England's bowling coach for the first three Ashes Tests in Australia later this summer, in place of Ottis Gibson.

Bond was quoted as saying by the Dominion Post, "I've got my sights on a head coaching role, but it's how it all lines up with everything else in your life".

"I love being a bowling coach but I think it gives a different perspective in terms of my own personal development, it's a new challenge and I think it will be good for me", he said.

He added, "I'm really clear about how I want to run things".

While Bond confirmed that he would like an opportunity as a head coach with the IPL, he was non-committal about talks regarding England.
