Peter Nevill steps into the NSW captaincy hotseat

Former Test wicketkeeper Peter Nevill will step up as fulltime captain of the NSW cricket team in place of the suspended Steve Smith.

It’s a fresh start all-round for New Soth Wales with Phil Jaques coming in as the new coach.

“He’s got a great knowledge of the game, he’s a great communicator.”

Last summer was disappointing for the Blues, who lost their final seven Sheffield Shield games to bomb out of contention.

“We lost a lot of key moments in games last year.”

“We’ll see a bit of a new look team and it’s great to see those guys getting an opportunity.”
