He certainly has all of the attributes required to get the best out of them and assist them grow into the next generation of WHITEFERNS. It’s an exciting time to be involved”.
 
King has been coaching domestic cricket for nine years. He said: “I am extremely excited to be given the chance to lead the SBS Bank Otago Sparks for another summer.
