Vettori and Greatbatch to explain Bangladesh tour debacle

8:54 am on 20 October 2010

Captain Dan Vettori and coach Mark Greatbatch have called a crisis meeting with the board of New Zealand Cricket to discuss the fallout of the disastrous tour of Bangladesh.

The meeting will take place on Friday after the Black Caps returned home last night from the 4-0 series loss in Bangladesh.

The result has been desribed as the lowest point in New Zealand cricket history, worse than the 26-run innings total New Zealand scored against England in a Test 55 years ago and which still stands as the lowest score in Test history.

The pair will be joined by the side's high performance manager Roger Mortimer and will make a presentation to the board as part of the tour review.

They'll also discuss the next month's three Test and five one day match tour of India.

The side for that tour is expected to be named on Sunday.
