Grant Bradburn, the former offspinner and the current coach of Scotland, said that he is interested in taking up the role of coaching the New Zealand national side after Mike Hesson decided to stand down from his position due to personal reasons.”Grant, if he’s not being talked about for (the New Zealand job), he should be,” Cricket Scotland chief executive Malcolm Cannon said.
New Zealand Cricket are likely to have a solid pile of candidates for the job when it’s advertised soon. There are no guarantees for Bradburn, who took ND to limited overs and first-class titles before heading overseas.
“I suspect there aren’t many jobs in the world he would leave Scotland for, but that would be one and we would absolutely recognise that. We wouldn’t stop him going for that job,” Cannon said.
Scotland have beaten four full member nations and Bradburn, who played seven tests and 11 ODIs in the 1990s and early 2000s, has been a significant figure in their growing professionalism, Cannon added.
