Katrina Keenan, the New Zealand women's coach, has resigned from her post to spend more time with her family. Keenan, a former New Zealand fast bowler, was in charge of the side for little more than a year, including the 2013 World Cup where her team finished fourth.

"Katrina was a top operator," New Zealand Cricket Head of Cricket Operations Lindsay Crocker said. "She knew the demands of high level sport as a former World Cup winner and was incredibly driven in her plans to lift the White Ferns in the rankings."

New Zealand are looking to find a replacement for Keenan before hosting West Indies next month, a series which precedes the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh.
