Wright said the selectors, Mark Greatbatch, Glenn Turner and Lance Cairns will not be travelling with the team. Australia is one side which usually prefers to take a selector on tours.
“At the World Cup, myself, Dan Vettori and the vice-captain will pick the team. I am very comfortable with that, it is the way I have always operated,” Wright was quoted as saying by Stuff website.
The team is struggling for wins ahead of the sub-continental event, having lost home Test and One-day series against Pakistan. The Kiwis lost fifth One-day International Thursday to go down 1-3 in the six-match series with the final game scheduled for Feb 5.
Wright, who recently took up the job and is a former India coach, expects full commitment from his players.
“Winning and losing is part of the game but the public expect a team that fights. Losing (in Napier) was not much fun but I was very proud of the effort that was evident.
“From being five down to get to 260 was a good fighting rearguard action and we nearly pulled it off.”
