    Haha no, Dunedin has always had some pretty low Scots keen to get a trading gig at Barclays, but they are just the hollow men like Bradburn itbt. The NZRU or perhaps just all of New Zealand's corner-cutting 'boy, there's some coin to be made from Asia' agribusiness types, are ultimately Halliburton.

    This milk powder will give the world's children added calcium and potentially botulism. Sounds like it's multi-skilled with an X factor to me.

    If you want a vision of the future, just imagine Northern Districts administrators boots stamping on a human face. Forever.

    White is an experienced sports and events administrator. He is a former chief executive of Auckland Rugby and the Blues, and before that chief executive of Wellington Rugby and the Hurricanes.

    He recently returned to New Zealand after three years in England, as chief executive of Bristol Rugby, to head up the official travel and hospitality programme for Rugby World Cup 2011.

    ''The board of NZC is delighted to have secured the services of such an experienced sports administrator as David,'' NZC chairman Chris Moller said today.

    ''In addition it is a bonus that David has represented New Zealand in cricket and played for Northern Districts for 15 years, including being captain for two seasons.''

    White is a qualified physical education teacher and completed an accountancy degree at Massey University in 1990. He is also a current board member of the New Zealand Cricket Players' Association, a role that he will need to resign from before taking up his appointment with New Zealand Cricket on February 1 next year.

    White played 106 first-class matches for Northern Districts between 1979 and 1993, averaging a tick under 29. He also played two tests for New Zealand, against Pakistan in Pakistan in 1990, but made just 31 runs from four innings.

    Heh. Well we can be thankful it's not a Wellington boot .

    Tbf to the apparent ND/Otago hegemony, they are two of the three clearly better teams in the FC comp for the last few years and producers of many NZ players. I have no problem with them apart from a low regard for White and Hesson's honesty.

    Still has to be better than this

    “As an NZC Board member, a former BLACKCAP and a successful chief executive officer, Justin has all the attributes required to take over from Martin Snedden and to lead New Zealand Cricket.

    “Justin has impressed as a member of the NZC Board, and his time on the Board will see him quickly settle into the chief executive role.”

    Dr Vaughan represented New Zealand in six Test matches and 18 One-Day Internationals from 1992 until 1997.

    He is a qualified medical practitioner and is currently the chief executive of BrainZ instruments, an Auckland based medical technology company listed on the ASX.

    Largely agree with Strawman on this,

    If Auckland was running the show players like Kane would have been dropped for a bits and pieces limited overs specialists.

    ND especially, does have a proven track record of developing players who are succesful at the next level.

    I dont agree with Sodhi or Devcich and especially Bradburns influence but hopefully once Edgar gets his boots on the ground he will be in a better position to veto things, currently he is relying on people that he thinks he can trust.

    He has been out of town a while

    Dark Days In Bangladesh Provide Spur For Black Caps... | Stuff.co.nz

    Hesson believes they won't get caught short in Chittagong when the first of two tests starts on October 9.

    Five of his test squad are currently touring India and Sri Lanka with New Zealand A, while skipper Brendon McCullum, Hamish Rutherford and Neil Wagner are also in India at the Champions League, albeit in the Twenty20 format.

    The remaining squad members divided their time between Lincoln and Mt Maunganui, where the Merlin spin-bowling machine was on high revolution. Ground staff prepared pitches with couch grass which offer turn and bounce, in a bid to replicate subcontinent conditions for the batsmen, who are always a work in progress against quality spin.

    "They've worked pretty hard and tried a few different clays and grasses and seem to have found something that's pretty similar to over there, but 20 degrees Celsius cooler.

    "We're doing everything we can but it's nothing like being over there in the heat and actually playing games."

    The team have nine days in Sri Lanka and hope to play two two-day warmup games before hitting Bangladesh. One three-day practice match is scheduled at the first test venue at Chittagong, but on recent tours early October matches have been wiped out by rain.

    Hesson rates this a "huge tour", given New Zealand's test match struggles and the need to quickly get their world ranking of eight on an upward trend. Having shown promising signs at times against England, they're expected to beat Bangladesh and should do so, regardless of the conditions.

    Bangladesh have gone backwards since Jamie Siddons departed as coach, are ranked below Zimbabwe and have a solitary win and 33 defeats from 39 tests at home. Their most recent home test series was in November last year, when they lost to West Indies by 77 runs and 10 wickets.

    Uncapped pair Corey Anderson and Ish Sodhi are the only new faces in the New Zealand squad and both are in the mix for the top 11, with Hesson saying he had some selection head-scratchers.

    Hesson confirmed Bruce Martin remains his No 1 spinner but, in conditions where damp morning conditions can assist turn, legspinner Sodhi will be seriously considered. That would mean all-rounder Anderson batting at seven and playing as a third seamer, McCullum and BJ Watling moving up a spot each and Dean Brownlie potentially missing out.

    "He [Sodhi] is a work in progress but he's also good enough now if he gets the opportunity," Hesson said.

    "With the skill set that he's got, he's not your traditional loopy legspinner, he's able to control the game as well and he's got good variations."

    Senior paceman Tim Southee was named in the ODI squad only after recovering from ankle surgery, but Hesson said he might be considered for the second test on October 21.

    For the series opener, that leaves Trent Boult, and a tight race between Neil Wagner, Doug Bracewell and Mark Gillespie, the latter two currently duelling in Sri Lanka.

    "We've got four guys probably vying for three spots, and it could be two depending on whether we go with a couple of spinners," Hesson said.

    Openers Hamish Rutherford and Peter Fulton remain after their battering from England's pacemen. A much different test awaits on slow pitches against defensive fields, with patience a key virtue. Batsmen would be encouraged to play positively and not "die in a hole" against the local spinners with fielders crowding the bat.

    Good to have a spin bowling coach. Wiseman is well rated, I think?

    I'm going to assume, and hope like hell, that this is all it is. Because, I love Bond.

    It says a lot, about the 'trust' in McHesson, and the hopelessness of NZC comms team. That collective hairs on back of necks pricked up, and palms get sweaty - about what is not mentioned in a press release rather than what is mentioned.
