Somerset's Dutch fast bowler Andre van Troost has been forced to retire at the age of 26 because of a serious lower back injury.

New Zealand's cricket authorities yesterday named the former New Zealand bowler David Trist as coach and the former captain Jeff Crowe as team manager. Trist, 51, and Crowe, 41, will take over from Steve Rixon and John Graham, who are set to complete their terms at the end of New Zealand's tour of England.
