Bond has been credited with improving New Zealand's current bowling attack - based around swing bowlers Trent Boult and Tim Southee - into a world-class unit.

NZC head of cricket Lindsay Crocker said "we're very disappointed to be losing Shane. He's given great value to the Black Caps program and we were hopeful of having the benefit of his input over the next few seasons."
