When is the 2012 Gillette Cup and which schools are in it ? No news on the NZC website !
What funding does NZC receive annually from ICC? And how many $$ does NZC dedicate to youth pathways a la the Warriors and NZ Rugby ? When did NZ last have a young cricketer at Lords like Ross Taylor?
Gillette Cup is early December at Lincoln, probably won't be a release though until all finalists have been found. Hutt Valley High for Wgtn, King's for Auckland, Chch Boys High are in. Official site was actually quite good to it last year after they brought the tournament to Lincoln
