NZ coach ready to put in his papers

Auckland, Dec 14: After the Kiwis' disastrous tour of the Subcontinent, heads have threatened to roll. But New Zealand coach Mark Greatbatch is nto keen to put in his papers just yet. Greatbatch has accepted that 11 one-day losses on the trot is shocking, but says that he is not a quitter and will step down only if asked to.

"I've been asked to do this job through to the World Cup and I'm committed to that. If it's in the best interests of New Zealand cricket to make a change I'd accept that," Stuff.co.nz quoted Greatbatch, as saying. "At the end of the day it is about us winning games and becoming better. We are struggling to find that consistency and if it's me, it's me."

The New Zealand team, which was thrashed 0-5 in a one-day series against India, has equalled their second worst one-day run of 11 straight defeats.

They were earlier beaten 0-4 in a five-match ODI series by Bangladesh in October. The Black Caps' last win came in the first match of a Sri Lanka tri-series, against India, on August 10.
