Cricket Wellington is calling for nominations to be in the Wellington Maori cricket team. This season the Wellington Maori team will play their counterparts from Northern Districts in a series of matches in Taupo. It is also hoped that a National Maori Tournament will be able to be played this season.
Clubs are encouraged to put forward their players with Maori ancestry. Players can nominate themselves and do not have to rely on their clubs to do so. The selection process will be announced once nominations have been received.
David Little will coach the team and he is excited about the opportunity this team will provide for young Maori players. “A Wellington Maori team will add a pathway for Maori cricketers. The opportunity to represent your province is a privilege. The Wellington Maori team will play a big part in not only keeping Maori players involved in the game, but it will undoubtedly lead to more Maori kids taking up the game.”
To nominate a player at your club, please fill out the form here and return to Rhys Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org
