Jacob Oram

Former BLACKCAPS all-rounder Jacob Oram rejoined the WHITE FERNS as bowling coach at the backend of the 2017/18 summer.

Oram, a veteran of 229 internationals, had worked with the team in the past and accepted a role through to the middle of 2019.

“I’m really excited to come on board with the WHITE FERNS and join Haidee Tiffen’s coaching team,” Oram said.

“There’s an immense amount of talent and potential in the team and I’m looking forward to working with the bowlers in particular, and seeing what improvements we can make.”

Oram was one of three candidates short-listed for an interview and Tiffen said it was his experience and the work he’d done with some of the present players that impressed them the most.

“Jake’s a great guy and builds strong relationships.

“We’ve seen what he can do through his work with Hannah Rowe at the Central Hinds and we’re looking forward to having him with us on a full-time touring basis.”

Oram's first assignment was the incoming tour by the West Indies in March which saw the WHITE FERNS go undefeated over seven games in both ODIs and T20s.
