NZC take steps to appease critics

9:16 am on 9 April 2013

One of the architects of a proposed new constitution drafted for New Zealand Cricket says it's a brave step in response to some stinging criticism of the game's administration.

Several former international players have been critical of a lack of playing experience on the current board, and the governing body has included among its recommendations that in future all board members will be elected, none will be simply appointed, and vacancies will be advertised publicly.

Current board member Don McKinnon, who's been involved in drawing up the new constitution, hopes it will go some way to appeasing the critics.

A special meeting to vote on whether or not to accept the draft constitution will be held in July.
