John Wright, the former New Zealand batsman, is the frontrunner for the position of national coach once John Bracewell ends his term in April next year.

Though Wright hasn't declared any desire to coach the team, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) will contact him to get an answer, said Justin Vaughan, the board's chief executive.

"We didn't want to stress him ahead of time when we weren't even looking for applications," Vaughan told the Wellington-based Dominion Post. "But now that we are, we'll need to know one way or the other."

Wright, who coached India for five years, was appointed NZC's acting high performance manager last year but the post was among several abolished last month as the board underwent a major restructuring program an effort to become a world-class sporting organisation. However NZC was keen for Wright to stay on and take up a different role.
