Damien Wright leaving Black Caps

5:48 am on 29 August 2012

New Zealand Cricket is losing another of its coaching staff with the resignation of its Australian bowling coach Damien Wright.

Wright, appointed bowling coach in July last year when Allan Donald of South Africa turned down a contract extension, says he's leaving because he needed to be closer to home and near his family.

His resignation comes after that of the head coach, former New Zealand John Wright, who left this month after giving notice in May.
