New Zealand coach John Wright will step down from the national side in August after rejecting an offer to extend his contract, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) chief executive David White said on Tuesday.

In a move White described as “disappointing”, he said Wright will leave the Black Caps after the upcoming tour of the West Indies.

“John has been an outstanding servant for cricket in New Zealand over a long time and it is disappointing to lose someone of his calibre,” White said in a statement.
