New Zealand Cricket has a new-look board of directors which will lead the sport in the countdown to hosting ICC Cricket World Cup 2015
The new board includes three former internationals, plenty of new blood as well as directors with business acumen and sporting governance experience. There’s also a bit of cricketing royalty in the mix with legendary fast bowler Sir Richard Hadlee following in his father’s footsteps.
The New Zealand Cricket directors voted in at a Special General Meeting at Cornwall Cricket Club on 19 September 2013.
L-R: Geoff Allott, Martin Snedden, Greg Barclay, Liz Dawson, Don Mackinnon, Neil Craig, Stuart Heal. Inset: Sir Richard Hadlee.
