Former bowler Nash says Kiwi board in bigger mess than national team

Wellington, Fri, 23 Nov 2012 ANI

Wellington, Nov 23(ANI): Former captain and selector Dion Nash has said the problems in the New Zealand Cricket (NZC) board are much more worse than the tribulations in the national team.

Nash said the Black Caps' recent struggles on their Sri Lanka tour paled in comparison to the board's performance.

Nash believes David White was an effective chief executive but lacked strong support and direction from chairman Chris Moller's eight-person board, of which Robbie Hart is the only former international player.

"Any board that needs an advisory panel on cricket-specific matters is no board at all. What are they there for if they don't know what they're talking about? It's a joke," Stuff.co.nz quoted Nash, as saying.

"From the outside - and I'm very much on the outside - what's the plan and where are we going? It looks like we're just reacting the whole time and it looks like the Players' Association is driving things and not the board and not NZC," he added.

Nash felt any review in the wake of the Black Caps' awful showing in Sri Lanka, where they tumbled to their fifth consecutive test defeat this week, should be directed at the NZC governance rather than the team.

"They just need to score runs. There's a little cultural issue there . . . that if I was in the team, or a few others like Chris Cairns or Stephen Fleming or Nathan Astle, we would just not put up with guys consistently playing the same shots and getting out," Nash said.

"They're not learning and that needs to be addressed. Just saying 'That's how I play' is not good enough and not acceptable," he added. (ANI)
