New Zealand Cricket has decided to extend the contract of Gary Stead as the head coach for the national men’s team until mid-2025. Stead’s reappointment comes after a thorough consultative process and unanimous support from the cricket board.

The decision to retain Stead for all three formats was made after considering a split-coaching model and rejecting it. Stead’s coaching tenure has been marked by success, including leading the Black Caps to the finals in all three formats and the historic World Test Championship win.


Expressing his excitement, Stead stated, “I’m very humbled and privileged to do the role I do… It’s a real privilege to want to be involved with a great set of human beings representing New Zealand.” He also acknowledged the support he received from New Zealand Cricket and expressed his passion for the role.

Stead’s extended period as head coach will see him lead the team in major tournaments like the ICC T20 World Cup in 2024, the ICC ODI Champions Trophy in 2025, and potentially the ICC World Test Championship Final in June 2025.

New Zealand test captain, Tim Southee, expressed his satisfaction with Stead’s reappointment, citing the coach’s success in guiding the team to finals and building upon past achievements. The players are looking forward to continuing their journey under Stead’s leadership.

New Zealand Cricket’s decision to retain Stead reflects their confidence in his abilities and his impressive track record as one of New Zealand’s most successful men’s coaches. With Stead at the helm, the Black Caps can look ahead to the upcoming Cricket World Cup and other major tournaments with optimism and determination.
