Since the introduction of the One-Day International World Cup in 1975, the level of competition in cricket has risen significantly. Players and spectators alike fantasized about hoisting the game's most illustrious prize. As a result, they attempted everything they could to raise the level of competition. The New Zealanders emerged as the underdogs in the 2010s. Coaches have frequently underestimated them, yet they managed to reach the World Cup semi-finals in 2011. Later, in 2015 and 2019, they bagged the came in second place. Even though the players have given their all, certain people have managed to pull the team together.

He served on the South Sydney Rabbitohs Rugby League Football Club board, of which Russell Crowe owns a stake. He was appointed as the CEO for the Royal Challengers Bangalore management team, a team in the Indian Premier League. Midway through the season, owner Vijay Mallya voiced his discontent with the squad and its league performance by replacing bowling coach Venkatesh Prasad and mentor Charu Sharma, blaming them for the team's poor performance.

6. Glenn Turner

Turner's second appointment as head coach was for just one year. It is not at all a big question that New Zealand Cricket is in disarray. Among the new appointments, Turner was one of them who made barely a year ago by New Zealand's Cricket in a bid to clean up after a very dismal and miserable centennial season. Turner took a hard stance against the players, sacking Ken Rutherford as captain and as a member of the squad, among other things. Most New Zealanders warmly anticipated Turner's return to the post, owing to the improvement in New Zealand team's performance and attitude.

On Saturday, Bob Cunis, 67, died after playing 20 tests for New Zealand as a fast bowler and then coaching his country. Cunis was a stocky and big-hearted fast bowler who collected 51 wickets at an average of 37 in 51 tests from 1964 to 1972. He only had one five-wicket haul, but he was the workhorse of New Zealand's bowling attack. Cunis had 386 first-class wickets in his 17-year career and managed New Zealand's team from 1987 to 1990. Between 1964 and 1972, he played 20 Tests for New Zealand as a speed bowler, and he then coached the New Zealand national team from 1987 to 1990.
