Wellington, Oct 13 NZPA - Cricket New Zealand's head bowling coach, Dayle Hadlee, will leave for Dubai in the New Year to take up a position with the International Cricket Council's (ICC) global cricket academy.

The ICC announced today that Pakistan's Mudassar Nazar will also join the academy.

Mudassar will come into the job from his current position as director of game development for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

The pair will work alongside the academy's director of coaching, Rodney Marsh, to help train and develop the best talent in world cricket.

They will also work with international teams and local players to improve the standard of the sport across the United Arab Emirates.

The three coaches will design and implement specific elite programmes, provide coaching education courses and support grassroots development to make the GCA a centre of excellence, innovation and education for world cricket.

" Dayle and Mudassar are two of the best academy coaches in the world," Marsh said.

"I can't wait to start working with them in order to develop programmes that will help to improve cricket globally. We will have a great balance of coaching skills to offer every cricketer who comes to Dubai Sports City."

Hadlee played 26 tests and 11 one-day internationals for New Zealand. He then moved into coaching and became one of the most respected academy and fast-bowling coaches in the game.

" I am looking forward to this new chapter in my life and I hope my contribution will have a lasting impact on cricket around the world," Hadlee said.

"The ICC Global Cricket Academy will be a spectacular facility that will provide the best environment to develop talent and participation in the sport."
