New Zealand to announce new coach Saturday

Former Australian test batsman Darren Lehmann is among the candidates to be the new coach of New Zealand's national cricket team.
Lehmann, 39, confirmed Friday he had been in talks with New Zealand Cricket, initially about a role as a specialist batting coach. He is now seen as a leading candidate to fill the job left vacant when Englishman Andy Moles quit in October.
The board of New Zealand Cricket met in Christchurch on Friday and said the new coach would be named Saturday.
Former New Zealand test batsmen Jeff Crowe, now an ICC match referee, and Mark Greatbatch are among others who have been linked to the role.
