Former White Ferns captain Debbie Hockley has been elected the first female president in New Zealand Cricket’s (NZC) 122-year history.

Hockley’s three-year appointment was confirmed at NZC’s annual general meeting in Christchurch. She replaces outgoing president Stephen Boock.

Another former White Fern, Ingrid Cronin-Knight, has been appointed as an NZC director. She replaces Stuart Heal, who has stepped down after eight years on the board, including the past three as chairman.

Cronin-Knight has significant managerial experience. She is serving an internship on the board of Watercare, is a founding member of Women in Sport Aotearoa and heads the SME and Accountants business for MYOB in New Zealand.

At the first meeting of the new board, held directly after the conclusion of the AGM, Greg Barclay was elected NZC’s new chairman. Barclay has been a director of NZC since 2012, he was also a director of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup.

Over the past two years, Mr Barclay has acted as NZC’s appointee to the board of the ICC.
