NEW ZEALAND CRICKET S VISION Our ongoing strategic Vision Cricket a game for all New Zealanders a game for life. 4 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 WELCOME From the Chairman & CEO Few years have proved as evolutionarilysignificant for New Zealand Cricket as the 2015-16 period. Faced with a rapidly changing domestic environment and a challenging new strategic plan which seeks to make cricket more accessible and inclusive for all the organisation has embarked on a path calculated to secure the game s future and (not least) relevance for the generations of players officials fans and volunteers to come. Central to this strategic vision have been four foundation projects which will help guide our priorities and decisions for the foreseeable future. You can read more about One Cricket Women and Cricket Growing the Game and High Performance Alignment later in this report but suffice to say all are extremely wide-ranging initiatives aimed at future-proofing the game for all New Zealanders. Commercially NZC remains in a healthy state thanks to thriving partnerships with our international broadcasting partner Pitch International and our New Zealand broadcasting partner SKY the latter of which again showcased our game with a world-class multi-platform production for domestic and international viewers. This season was the 16th consecutive year of association with the ANZ Bank and the ANZ International Summer underscoring the value of one of our longest-running commercial partnerships and we again welcomed another significant year of support from our team partner Ford. Not surprisingly revenue for 2015-16 was down on the previous year due to 2014-15 being boosted by hosting profits from the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and ICC CWC 2015 tournament distributions. However our operating loss for this year ( 2.16m) was significantly better than the loss forecast ( 5.0m) thanks mainly to increased gatetakings and increased distributions from the ICC. As covered in the financial report and accounts the funding model for distributions from the ICC is still under review but has improved from previous years with instalments of ICC tournament dividends now being received more regularly than was the case in the past. We propose to continue lobbying the ICC for a smoother funding model which would disperse revenue in close to equal instalments through the eight-year funding period. the organisation has embarked on a path calculated to secure the game s future and (not least) relevance for the generations of players officials fans and volunteers to come. Few years have proved as evolutionarilysignificant for New Zealand Cricket as the 2015-16 period. DAVID WHITE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 A year of transformation saw the BLACKCAPS continue their progress on the world stage and particularly in the two shorter forms of the game where they rose to No.1 in the world in Twenty20s and No.2 in One Day Internationals. The highlights in terms of white ball cricket were a thrilling win against Australia to retain the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy and an impressive campaign in the ICC World Twenty20 in India where they knocked over the hosts and Australia before being eliminated at the semi-final stage. In terms of Tests the BLACKCAPS swept aside Sri Lanka but lost both home and away series against Australia who ended the summer as the world s No.1 ranked side. However the New Zealand team s ability to fight to the end was showcased in an impressive batting effort at Perth in particular when Ross Taylor amassed 290 (the highest score in Australia from a visiting batsman) and Kane Williamson 166. By the end of that tour which concluded with a historic day-night Test at Adelaide incorporating a revolutionary pink ball Williamson had become the first New Zealander to be ranked as the No.1 Test batsman in the world. By the end of the year he had added a century against Zimbabwe in the process becoming only the 13th player in Test history (and the first New Zealander) to make centuries against all Test-playing nations. That match was also Williamson s first as New Zealand s Test captain following the retirement of Brendon McCullum from international cricket at the end of the home series against Australia. McCullum achieved two notable milestones in that series at Wellington he became the first player in history to play 100 consecutive Tests since debut and at Christchurch he struck the fastest Test century ever off just 54 balls. The WHITE FERNS continued to make progress on and off the field. They picked up valuable ICC Women s World Championship points against South Africa early in the season white-washed Sri Lanka in both ODIs and T20s and beat Australia in a T20 series before being pipped 2-1 in the Rose Bowl. They then travelled to India for the ICC Women s World T20 where they performed impressively before being eliminated in the semis by the West Indies. Off the field the New Zealand women s cricketers were also able to make important strides this time through the confirmation of a new Memorandum of Understanding with NZC in which 15 of the country s best women cricketers have been offered annual retainers ranging in value from 20 000 to 34 000. This replaced the previous system in which ten WHITE FERNS contracts were awarded annually ranging in value from 10 000-12 000. On the domestic cricket front NZC emphasised the need to retain consistent windows for the three men s formats with the four-day Plunket Shield book-ending both the short-form varieties. A feature of the 2016-17 season will be a re-vamped T20 competition branded as the McDonald s Super Smash the main changes being a more holiday-friendly scheduling window a push towards more familyoriented times and venues and the showcasing of some of country s favourite holiday hot-spots. New Zealanders can be pleased with how the Community game has benefitted from in general the popularity of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and more specifically the legacy projects designed to harness the inevitable interest in the tournament. In the junior area in particular participation numbers have risen 19.4% on the back of the renewed enthusiasm and we believe further opportunities for progress are being uncovered by our work within One Cricket Women and Cricket and Growing the Game initiatives. In terms of Governance NZC continues to receive respect and consideration at ICC level and to play a meaningful role in discussions and decisions NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 WELCOME 7 In terms of Governance NZC continues to receive respect and consideration at ICC level and to play a meaningful role in discussions and decisions around in particular the relevance and context surrounding the Test game and the changing world of broadcast rights. In the past year we have supported the Day-Night format in terms of wider exposure and have pushed so far unsuccessfully for a proposal to split Test cricket into two divisions with a promotion-relegation element and a world championship final between the two top teams. Closer to home we thank the NZC Board for its work during a challenging year in which it not only oversaw strong outcomes for the present but supported investment in the four strategic initiatives in order to secure for cricket a sustainable and consistent future. It is appropriate also to offer a message of thanks to our outgoing President Mr Stephen Boock for his enthusiasm and expertise in fulfilling his duties over the past four years. The most saddening event of the past year for NZC and cricket lovers everywhere was the passing of New Zealand s greatest international batsman Martin Crowe aged 53. We pay tribute to Martin later in this report and remember the batsman who more than any other New Zealander made the modern world of cricket sit up and take notice. Even now it is hard to believe the man who played such a prominent role in our modern history is no longer with us. The cricketing world is the poorer for his passing. In conclusion we would again like to point out that cricket is a team game. Only with the support and cooperation of a range of key stakeholders could we have hoped to plot such an aspirational path as we have over the past year. With this in mind we d like to extend our gratitude to Heath Mills and New Zealand Cricket Players Association for their commitment to player welfare to Sport NZ and High Performance Sport NZ for their funding mentoring and elite-level support and to the Major Associations District Associations clubs and schools for helping promote cricket as such a positive experience. Not least a strong vote of thanks to all the staff at NZC whose skill and resources have helped define the past year as one of great hope and progress. STUART HEAL BOARD CHAIRMAN 8 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 STRATEGIC PLAN Strategic Plan NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 STRATEGIC PLAN 9 01 10 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 STRATEGIC PLAN Strategically Speaking In November last year the cricket family at the NZC AGM agreed and rolled out our new strategic plan to help guide our priorities and decisions in the years to come Cricket A game for all New Zealanders a game for life. This was a collaborative process and set us all up with a very exciting and unique opportunity to play a role in shaping the future of cricket in New Zealand. While cricket is currently experiencing an unprecedented level of success on and off the field with the performance and conduct of the national teams and strong interest in our sport we have also agreed via our new strategy that we must position and prepare ourselves for the future. New Zealand is changing and we need to change with it. Many traditional and team sports are struggling for traction those who do not adapt and adjust face an uncertain future. We must work together to nurture and grow our game. With this is mind the NZC Board is driving four key strategic projects designed to lay a platform to achieve this vision One Cricket Women and Cricket Growing the Game and High Performance Alignment. Each is significant in its own right but together they represent the central thrust of NZC s response to the demographic ethnic and social trends which are challenging the game today. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. the NZC Board is driving four key strategic projects designed to lay a platform to achieve this vision One Cricket Women and Cricket Growing the Game and High Performance Alignment. NEW ZEALAND CRICKET 01 02 03 04 One Cricket Women and Cricket Growing the Game High Performance Alignment 12 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 STRATEGIC PLAN One Cricket One of the first and most important projects in this plan is One Cricket the biggest review of cricket to be completed in New Zealand for decades. One Cricket is a key project from Major Association and District Associations down to club and school level across administrators officials and players ultimately aimed at making the delivery model for the game in this country more consistent efficient and sustainable. A key project for the whole cricket family One Cricket spans across all four of our strategic initiatives and will run from May 2016 to April 2017. The findings will provide us with a clear road map for the future as we all work together to achieve our vision Cricket a game for all New Zealanders a game for life. The key focus of the first phase of the project has been assessing the health of the game in New Zealand. A key part of our guiding philosophy is that we are dealing in fact we are seeking to understand the problem before trying to solve it and that we are prepared to be brave to make a difference. It is about working collaboratively throughout the organisation and with our partners and stakeholders to realise our full potential and deliver a sustainable platform for cricket at all levels in New Zealand for all New Zealanders. We know there are challenges facing our sport. But none are insurmountable. A key part of our guiding philosophy is that we are dealing in fact we are seeking to understand the problem before trying to solve it. One Cricket is a key project from Major Association and District Associations down to club and school level across administrators officials and players 14 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 STRATEGIC PLAN Women and Cricket With the completion of Sarah Beaman s Women and Cricket Report NZC is now well placed to understand the need for the game to better engage women to consider its response to the details and recommendations contained within and to decide how we as a cricket family can best tackle the issues and opportunities identified. The coming six months will see NZC lead a programme to look at solutions and to progress work that has already begun. In particular the Women and Cricket report has identified the need for reform in terms of participation programmes for girls cricket talent pathways for women in domestic cricket development opportunities for female coaches and umpires and officials. The report highlighted the critical need for higher participation numbers showing that those who play the game are three times more likely to remain engaged later in life. Notably the report argues NZC will not be able to effectively engage with women until and unless there are more women in governance and management roles at all levels of the sport. The percentage of women in national governance roles in cricket has dropped from 38% to 14% since the disestablishment of the New Zealand Women s Cricket Council. The evidence both locally and internationally is that for any change to be made NZC must lead it. NZC s continued progress is being led by the BLACKCAPS and more recently the WHITE FERNS. This is evidenced not only by results but also by players successful transitions from first class to international level. However we are measuring success on where we have been historically compared to the present and not where we could and should be. The percentage of women in national governance roles in cricket has dropped from 38% to 14% since the disestablishment of the New Zealand Women s Cricket Council. 16 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 STRATEGIC PLAN Growing the Game The objective of our Growing the Game initiative is to re-define how we connect with New Zealanders so that we remain relevant to their changing needs while developing sustainable and diverse revenue platforms. This means developing a unified Masterbrand a better participant orientated strategy and better appreciating the way all parts of the sport contribute to the whole. Crucially we know playing the game is critical to being a fan for life and therefore remaining generationally relevant. NZC is operating in a fast changing environment. Currently the NZC brand is strongly aligned with the BLACKCAPS whereas there is a pressing need to celebrate and grow cricket in its entirety from competitions to community to local clubs and beyond. We must open up our offer to a wider New Zealand to increase participation and consumption of cricket at all levels and in doing so increase the numbers of the game s future ambassadors advocates and fans not to mention the overall richness of our cricket environment. Just one example of how we intend to progress this strategy is NZC s continued development of a variety of modified cricket playing resources and formats in which participants are not restricted by the formalities of traditional cricket. Evidence suggests that by offering opportunities to play cricket within a more flexible framework whether this be in the playground in the backyard or at the beach higher participation rates will follow. NEW ZEALAND CRICKET Evidence suggests that by offering opportunities to play cricket within a more flexible framework whether this be in the playground in the backyard at the beach higher participation rates will follow. 18 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 STRATEGIC PLAN High Performance Alignment High Performance Alignment aims to ensure success is maintained and enhanced by establishing greater integration through the entire New Zealand Cricket High Performance system and particularly in terms of an improved alignment between NZC and the Major Associations in order to better nurture our playing talent. International examples of best practice demonstrate the best national teams are underpinned by the best domestic programmes. The problem facing many other NSOs is that they don t have access to players they don t have pathways and professional players are developed in professional team silos completely disconnected from national sports pathways. The flow-on effect is that the domestic teams and structures suffer through a lack of funding and support. By offering MAs a certain amount of autonomy in the domestic structures it s hoped to help domestic High Performance programmes learn from each other and make the domestic and international teams better. The goal is not to just win an ICC ODI or Twenty20 World Cup or get to No.1 in the Test rankings. The goal is to reach these targets consistently. NZC has a realistic opportunity to achieve this talent is NOT the issue. Everyone within our system plays a part in achieving or failing at these lofty goals. The key is working together and achieving this at domestic level without creating road blocks to the national team s success.

But it was after being named captain of the BLACKCAPS that his reputation genuinely soared - becoming a household name in New Zealand and winning acclaim as one of the most successful and innovative leaders in world cricket. Under McCullum s stewardship New Zealand elevated themselves from the bottom of the pile of the International Cricket Council s Test One Day International and T20 rankings to become the most improved team in the world to the extent that at the time of publication they were ranked No.1 in T20s No.2 in ODIs and No.7 in a bottlenecked Test table. McCullum s first year at the helm in 2013 saw the BLACKCAPS make encouraging improvements 2014 brought an unprecedented period of success including a record five Test wins in the calendar year and in 2015 he led them to the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. He signed off by helping retain the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy and at Hagley Oval in late February by slamming the fastest century in the history of Test cricket. 24 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 OUR PEOPLE McCullum empowered his players giving them license to attack and to be innovative. He encouraged them to take the initiative and because of that many of his team-mates such as Trent Boult Corey Anderson Kane Williamson Ross Taylor Tim Southee BJ Watling Tom Latham Grant Elliott and others were able to make strong progress. McCullum also led by example - becoming the First New Zealander to score a Test match triple century First Test batsman since Hammond and Bradman (in the 1930s) to score a doublecentury and a triple century in consecutive Tests First New Zealander to score more than 200 on four occasions First New Zealander to score 1000 Test runs in a calendar year Fastest New Zealand Test century-maker Fastest century-maker in Test history First player in Test history to play 100 consecutive Tests from debut Wisden which named McCullum as one of their five players of the year made special mention of his influence during New Zealand s 2015 tour of England and beyond hailing the sense of joie de vivre which allowed him to sign off his international career with a 54-ball century against Australia An English summer has rarely witnessed a more popular touring captain than McCullum whose attacking approach obliged England to follow suit during one of the most entertaining and best-natured series they have hosted. McCullum was named the 2015 Halberg Sportsman of the Year and in the 2015 Queen s Birthday Honours was (with his coach Mike Hesson) named a recipient of the Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZM) for Services to Cricket. It was at the ICC CWC 2015 that McCullum s stocks soared the highest. Leading from the front with the bat he led the New Zealand men s team to their first ever final of a Cricket World Cup where they were eventually beaten by Australia. His reading and analysis of the game combined with his revolutionary tactics in the field and with the ball earned critical acclaim for changing the way the game was and would be played. McCullum s individual Test batting record should be split three ways. As a designated wicket-keeper he averaged 34.18 as a specialist batsman he averaged 42.94 and when captain of the BLACKCAPS he averaged 45.28. His leadership also stood out for its goodwill and sportsmanship. The manner in which McCullum s team conducted itself on the field sometimes in the face of provocation drew widespread praise to the extent his team were applauded after the ICC CWC 2015 tournament for not just a fine performance in qualifying for the final but for playing the game in such a positive spirit. It was at the ICC CWC 2015 that McCullum s stocks soared the highest. Leading from the front with the bat he led the New Zealand men s team to their first ever final of a Cricket World Cup An English summer has rarely witnessed a more popular touring captain than McCullum 26 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 OUR PEOPLE Enter McCullum. He smashed slapped flicked and flayed the ball to all corners of the ground en-route to the fastest ever Test century coming from just 54 balls. Australia had no answer. NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 OUR PEOPLE 27 BRENDON MCCULLUM S FINAL INNINGS Cometh the hour cometh the man On a warm summer s day in his adopted home of Christchurch in his final Test Brendon McCullum strides to the middle of Hagley Oval with his team under the pump against arch rivals Australia. Having lost the toss and been asked to bat on a green seamer the BLACKCAPS had been reduced to 32 for 3 after 20 overs and the Australian quicks had their tails up. Enter McCullum. The New Zealand captain proceeded to fearlessly counter punch his team out of the corner in an innings for the ages. He smashed slapped flicked and flayed the ball to all corners of the ground en-route to the fastest ever Test century coming from just 54 balls. Australia had no answer. McCullum later confessed to knowing nothing of the record as he teared towards and broke his hero Viv Richard s 56 ball milestone with a familiar charge and slash over cover. All the trademarks of his glittering career were on display in the whirlwind knock as the 34-yearold treated the fans to one final reminder of his exceptional talent and hand eye coordination. Most of Test cricket s previous fastest hundreds had been compiled in circumstances that heavily favoured the batsman but not this one. McCullum s back to the wall blitz was a ferocious cocktail of power and panache and eventually finished on 145 from 79 balls with 21 fours six 6s at a strike rate of 183. Supported by Corey Anderson (72) the BLACKCAPS skipper turned the opening day on it s head as the pair belted the Aussies about in the afternoon clubbing 161 runs from 16 overs at one stage. Australia like everybody in the ground were left spellbound. It was an absolute I was there day for all in attendance and a fitting knock for McCullum s farewell match.

As a key member of the BLACKCAPS T20 side he was involved in all six ICC World T20 tournaments to date. McCullum called time on his 20 over career with 58 wickets which made him New Zealand s top wicket taker in T20s. McCullum was often trusted in pressure situations whether it was opening the bowling being thrown the ball in the power play or picking up crucial runs in the final overs. He will be remembered for hitting Sri Lanka for 22 runs off the final four balls of an ODI. His crafty off spinners often restricted teams leading him to finish his career with an average economy rate of just 6.82. That consistency saw him climb to the third top spot in the T20 bowling rankings in 2012 while spending years in the top 10. After his final tournament BLACKCAPS coach Mike Hessan described McCullum as a scrapper. He bats bowls and fields like his life depends on it and is a very proud Kiwi. He was the complete all-round player with his fielding being up with the best in the world. Everyone will have their favourite Martin Crowe innings he played that many of them. NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 OUR PEOPLE 31 Remembering Martin 22 SEPTEMBER 1962 03 MARCH 2016 Courage is a word that immediately comes to mind as we remember New Zealand cricket s most successful batsman Martin David Crowe -- who passed away this year aged 53. From the early days when as a 19-yearold he underwent a baptism of fire against Australian fast-bowlers Dennis Lillee and Jeff Thomson to more recent times when he revealed his battle with lymphoma - the cricketer affectionately known as Hogan marked himself out as a man of extraordinary skill and bravery. Seventy-seven Tests a New Zealand record 17 centuries 18 half centuries a highest score of 299 and an average of 45.36 the statistics speak for themselves. Yet they only tell part of the story. Martin was our greatest batsman no contest said New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White. But he was much more besides that. He was a technician a stylist a tactician and a strategist. He was innovative and thoughtful and most of all he showed great courage both as a player and as a former player. Everyone will have their favourite Martin Crowe innings he played that many of them. For me there were those three wonderful centuries he scored against Viv Richards West Indies and an attack that included the most hostile fast-bowlers in the world Malcolm Marshall Michael Holding Joel Garner and Courtney Walsh. 32 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 OUR PEOPLE And the other standout innings was the century he scored against Pakistan in Lahore when he comfortably negated the pace bowling threats of both Waqar Younis and Wasim Akram. Statistics don t tell of the influence Martin had on some of New Zealand s most famous series wins either against Australia in 1985 when he scored a fabulous 188 at Brisbane and again against Australia in early 1986 when he struck that epic 137 at Lancaster Park. That was the match in which Martin was hit in the jaw by Bruce Reid was assisted from the field to receive ten stitches and later returned to the fray to launch a blistering counter-attack. Twenty-nine runs came from three overs. He went to his century from 156 balls (18 fours) and kept attacking until he was last man out caught in the deep. Martin was a central figure in New Zealand s historic series win in England later that year scoring a century at Lord s before steering his side to victory at Trent Bridge with an unbeaten 48 in the fourth innings. During his heyday he was arguably without peer as an international batsman and at the 1992 Cricket World Cup where he led New Zealand to the semi-finals he was certainly so. NZC board chairman Stuart Heal described Martin s passing as tragic. To lose him at such a young age is unbearably sad and especially so for his loved ones and close friends. Mr Heal said it was fitting Martin s favourite New Zealand player was Bert Sutcliffe - another enormously courageous New Zealand batsman. It was Sutcliffe who in the 1953 Boxing Test against South Africa at Ellis Park was struck in the head by a Neil Adcock bouncer collapsed at the crease and again at the hospital before returning to the ground to smash an unbeaten 80 including seven sixes. Martin really was our modern-day Sutcliffe said Mr Heal. He was so graceful and so fearless parents took their kids to watch him play hoping his excellence might rub off on them. There were few more magnificent sights in cricket than Crowe s checked off-drive. As a shot it spoke of everything defence attack the ability to process multiple factors in a flashpoint of time technique balance. It was a muscletwitch of a shot a sub-conscious adjustment and no-one in the world played it better than Crowe. Not surprisingly for such a fine technician he later became a role model for generations of up-and-coming New Zealand batsmen including a few who are now BLACKCAPS. This from current BLACKCAPS batsman Martin Guptill Not only was Martin a great sportsman but more importantly a great human. I couldn t have asked for a better mentor and friend to help me through the last couple of years. During his heyday he was arguably without peer as an international batsman and at the 1992 Cricket World Cup where he led New Zealand to the semi-finals he was certainly so. NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 OUR PEOPLE 33 Terence (Terry) James Baines 15 APRIL 1934 29 NOVEMBER 2015 As an umpire Terry stood at senior level in the Christchurch competition and he progressed to the first class scene in 1980 when he stood in the New Zealand Under 23 v Canterbury match. He umpired seven first class matches in total with his last in February 1988. His passion and service to cricket did not stop there for he took up scoring at which he excelled rising to international level in women s cricket. Terry scored in the ICC Women s World Cup of 2000 and continued at this level through to March 2008. In total he scored in 22 Internationals involving India England and Australia against New Zealand. He also scored at several National Under 19 tournaments at Lincoln where for a large part he was aligned with the Canterbury team. Of course Terry was a very familiar and respected figure around the local cricket grounds where he scored for the Lancaster Park Woolston Premier team from 1991 for 24 years and over 330 matches. In addition he scored for the Canterbury Country senior representative team from 2000-01 to the time of his death during this long service he shared in their Hawke Cup successes. His professionalism was always appreciated and he was meticulous in his book work and embraced any change in scoring delivery. In his late 70s Terry took to scoring on his laptop with a run sheet. Terry was a Life Member of the Lancaster Park Woolston Cricket Club. A true servant of the game 34 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 OUR PEOPLE Ross McPherson 24 OCTOBER 1938 - 4 SEPTEMBER 2016 Ross was a left hand opening batsman from Northland noted for his solid defence. He debuted for Northern Districts in 1959-60 and enjoyed a reasonably successful first season averaging over 30 with a top score of 87 versus Wellington. He had less success the following season and dropped out of the team though he did have a couple of recalls in 1961-62 and 1970-71. In all Ross played 13 first class games for Northern Districts scoring 419 runs at an average of 17.46. The 87 v Wellington remained his top score. Ross was even more renowned as a hockey goalkeeper playing 64 games for New Zealand and attending both the 1968 and 1972 Olympic Games. A dogged defender with cricket bat and hockey stick NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 OUR PEOPLE 35 Don Cameron 20 FEBRUARY 1933 7 SEPTEMBER 2016 DJ Cameron who passed away in Auckland aged 83 was one of New Zealand s finest and most enduring cricket writers having brought the game to life for generations of avid readers from the 1950s to present day. Ranked alongside Dick Brittenden as one our country s best cricket scribes Cameron will be remembered for his eagerly-anticipated matchreports (especially in the pre-internet era) his nose for a hard news story and his excellent story-telling ability not infrequently involving a strong whiff of self-deprecating humour. His tour book Caribbean Crusade a journal of the New Zealand team s maiden tour of the West Indies in 1972 remains a signature work and a valuable record of the trials and tribulations of New Zealand touring life at the start of the game s modern era. Born in Dunedin and educated at a range of Catholic schools Cameron won a job on the New Zealand Herald in Auckland in time to help cover the 1950 Empire Games and stayed with the paper until his retirement in 1998. Even then he continued to pen thoughtprovoking columns for the Herald on a weekly basis and was a regular contributor to overseas periodicals and online publications such as Wisden Monthly. One of the great story-tellers Cameron bridged the old-school world of cricket and the new internet-connected age. He could talk of interviews with 49ers such as Bert Sutcliffe Merv Wallace and Johnny Hayes with the 80s stars Hadlee Crowe Turner and Wright and about the more recent class of Fleming Astle McMillan and Vettori. He was an enthusiastic supporter of young writers always finding time to assist and mentor the emerging journalists on the block and later as a life member of the NZ Sports Journalism Association lent his name to the Young Sports Writer of the Year Award. Descriptive but pointed serious but funny and always original his career work represents an invaluable asset in terms of the heritage of New Zealand cricket. 36 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 OUR PEOPLE New Zealand Cricket Awards 2015 16 Sir Richard Hadlee Medal for Player of the Year Kane Williamson Bert Sutcliffe Medal for Outstanding Services to Cricket Rex Smith ANZ Test International Player of the Year Kane Williamson NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 OUR PEOPLE 37 ANZ ODI International Player of the Year Martin Guptill Winsor Cup (Bowling) Trent Boult Redpath Cup (Batting) Kane Williamson International Women s Player of the Year Suzie Bates Domestic Women s Player of the Year Amy Satterthwaite 38 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 COMMUNITY AND COMMERCIAL Community and Commercial NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 COMMUNITY AND COMMERCIAL 39 03 40 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 COMMUNITY AND COMMERCIAL Community and Commercial Participation The number of people participating in organised cricket in New Zealand has increased by 7.32% from 2014-2015 with the total participation reaching over 170 000. The census results indicate that increasing numbers of people are choosing to play modified formats of cricket (up 19.4%) often at times during the week that suit them. These midweek modified formats will play an increasingly important part of growing the game in the future. National School Competitions Primary intermediate and secondary school cricketers from throughout the country competed in the annual national schools competitions and their finals tournaments. More than 16 000 from 1 099 schools competed across five competitions.

Heart Kids is dedicated to providing lifelong care and support to those affected by childhood heart defects the only such organisation in New Zealand. For the second year-running a number of NZC staff in Auckland participated in the NZ Heart Stopper Challenge which sees people submerse themselves in freezing water for five minutes. Participants raise money prior through asking for online donations. During the summer the BLACKCAPS once again used Heart Kids as flag bearers for their ANZ International Series matches which allows the kids to interact with the players and get on the park just prior to the start of each match. August 2016 was Heart Kids Awareness Month and NZC pushed a number of initiatives to promote awareness and encourage donations. THE BLACKCAPS had the Heart Kids logo printed on their collar for both of their Test matches against South Africa and sent out an online video calling on people to get in behind the cause. NZC remains committed to continuing to work with Heart Kids and pushing such an important cause in New Zealand society. 44 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 COMMUNITY AND COMMERCIAL Partners 2 degrees Official Telecommunications Supplier Carnegie Sports Marketing Ground Signage Supplier Accor Preferred Accommodation Supplier Coca Cola Amatil Group Official Drinks Partner to New Zealand Cricket Air New Zealand Preferred Supplier of Air Travel Services DMC Official Cricket Equipment Supplier to the National Schools Programme ANZ Major Sponsor of the ANZ International Series Official Bank of New Zealand Cricket Ford New Zealand Team Sponsor of the BLACKCAPS & WHITE FERNS Major Sponsor of the Ford Trophy Official Vehicle Supplier Avis Budget Group Major Sponsors of the Plunket Shield Official Rental Vehicle Suppliers Lion Foundation Funding Partner Blue Bubble BLACKCAPS Business Club Member McDonald s Major Sponsor of the Men s Domestic Twenty20 Competition (Georgie Pie Super Smash) Caltex Official Fuel Supplier Canterbury of New Zealand Official Clothing Supplier Mitre 10 BLACKCAPS Business Club Member NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 COMMUNITY AND CULTURE 45 New Zealand Community Trust Funding Partner Specsavers Major Sponsor of the NZC Umpires New Zealand Post Title Sponsor of the National Schools Programme Sport New Zealand Sports Development & High Performance Partner Photosport Photography Partner TAB Sports Betting Partner Pitch International International Broadcast Partner Techfront LED Signage Supplier Radio Sport (NZME) Radio Broadcast Partner Ticketek Ticketing Partner Resene BLACKCAPS Business Club Member TUI (DB Breweries Ltd) The official Beer of New Zealand Cricket Les Mills Official gym to the BLACKCAPS Velocity Brand Management NZ Management of the New Zealand Cricket Licencing Programme SKY Television Official Broadcast Partner 46 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 OUR HIGH PERFORMANCE TEAMS Our High Performance Teams SPORTS PHOTOGRAPHY SUPPLIED BY PHOTOSPORT.CO.NZ NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 OUR HIGH PERFORMANCE TEAMS 47 04 48 NEW ZEALAND CRICKET ANNUAL REPORT 2015 16 OUR HIGH PERFORMANCE TEAMS BLACKCAPS A six off the first ball of the tournament from Martin Guptill announced the BLACKCAPS arrival at the ICC World T20 in India. Led by newly appointed captain Kane Williamson the BLACKCAPS created waves from the opening match when they beat hosts India at a sold-out Nagpur. The BLACKCAPS backed up the performance with victory over Trans-Tasman rivals Australia and then Pakistan and Bangladesh to top their group and go through as the only undefeated team at the tournament. That led them to New Delhi for a semi-final against England. Despite a bright start with the bat England were able to restrict them to 153-8 before chasing down the target with seven wickets and 17 balls in hand to end the BLACKCAPS tournament. Many starred throughout the tournament but the two stand-out performers for the BLACKCAPS were undoubtedly the young spinning duo Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi. Santner (24) and Sodhi (23) combined for 20 wickets in the tournament and boasted economy rates of under 6.50.

Delhi. They followed that up with a comprehensive 93 run win over Ireland before coming up against world number one Australia in Nagpur. The WHITE FERNS proceeded to reduce the Southern Stars to 4-4 with Leigh Kasperek taking three wickets in her first two overs. Their innings concluded at 103-8. Contributions throughout the top-order led to a four wicket victory for the WHITE FERNS and all but guaranteed them top of their group. They beat South Africa in the final pool match to set-up a semi-final against the West Indies in Mumbai. Four wickets from Sophie Devine helped keep the WHITE FERNS target to 144 for victory despite 61 from Britney Cooper.

By the end of the Plunket Shield season Popli had racked up 1149 runs at 67.58. While Popli dominated the batting statistics it was two spinners that finished atop of the bowling ranks. Ajaz Patel and Tarun Nethula finished with 43 and 39 wickets respectively. However it was Nethula that helped his side lift the Plunket Shield by the end of the season. The Mondiale Auckland Aces were the best team throughout the year losing only once. With the Aces having Nethula leading with the ball Michael Guptill-Bunce and Jeet Raval enjoyed impressive seasons with the bat. Canterbury and Wellington also had strong seasons both finishing the season with five wins each. The Ford Trophy The Devon Hotel Central Stags put on a show in the final of the Ford Trophy providing one of the best ever performances with the bat in the Ford Trophy. George Worker played a match winning innings at the top of the order for the Stags (159 off 151 balls.) Worker also had good support from Tom Bruce Jesse Ryder and Will Young who all brought up half centuries. Bruce hitting seven sixes in his 71 off just 23 balls. The Stags ending their innings with a mammoth 4056. Canterbury had a terrible start to their innings losing both openers within the first two overs and there was really no way back from there. Although Andrew Ellis hit an impressive 101 off 76 balls Canterbury were always a long way off. The Stags winning in the end by the huge margin of 156 runs. Georgie Pie Super Smash Luck wasn t on the Canterbury Kings side after their preliminary final was rained out. This meant the SBS Bank Otago Volts would play the Mondiale Auckland Aces in the Georgie Pie Super Smash Final. New Plymouth hosted the two teams from opposite ends of the country and the team from the City of Sails would be crowned victorious. The Aces batted well bringing up 166-6 off their 20 overs with Rob Nicol top scoring (77 off 54 balls.) The Volts had a number of starts in their innings but lost wickets at crucial times. BLACKCAP Mitchell McClenaghan was the star with the ball picking up three wickets in one over. The Plunket Shield brought attention to a potential star of the future in the name of Bharat Popli.

The final 31 July 2016 NZC operating result was significantly better than the budgeted loss of ( 5.0m) being a ( 2.16m) operating loss and an overall surplus. This is thanks largely to increased gate takings flowing from the success of the international domestic season and increased USD distributions from the ICC. The extra revenue was partially offset by increased international match and tour costs extra player payments and increased spend on unifying strategic projects including Women and Cricket and One Cricket. Revenue for 2015-16 was down compared with 2014-15. This was due to the prior year containing the hosting profit of the CWC 2015 and the ICC CWC 2015 distributions. after adjusting for the valuation of our foreign currency hedging held at 31 July 2016 shows a surplus for the year of approximately 4.4m for NZC increasing the organisations equity. The Foreign Exchange Hedging Valuation Adjustment Gain is a result of the hedging valuation described below. Please note that the Hedging Valuation Adjustment exchange gain is a non-cash unrealised notional transaction related to the valuation of exchange contracts for future years compared to the USD rate as at 31 July 2016. This notional calculation is based on the ANZ Bank s market to market valuation methodology. This calculation is required under accounting rules and assigns a notional value to future foreign exchange contracts held as at year end with reference to the prevailing 31 July 2016 exchange rate (USD 0.722). As at July 2015 after the rapid 25% devaluation of the NZD to the USD the hedging held by NZC was approximately a ( 4.2m) liability. In the intervening year and after an 11% appreciation of the NZD to the USD the hedging that NZC held as at July 2016 was a 2.4m asset. With much of NZC s revenue being received in USD NZC faces the same challenges shared by other NZ exporters. The trend over 2015-16 has been that of a strengthening NZ dollar to both the USD and AUD. The strengthening of the NZD to the USD has muted the positive impact It should be noted that in 2016 NZC has and effect of increased ICC USD revenue and US prepared special purpose financial statements. dollars on hand.
