Former White Ferns captain Debbie Hockley has been elected New Zealand Cricket's (NZC) first female president in its 122-year history.
A member of cricket's international hall of fame, Hockley replaces outgoing president Stephen Boock and will hold the position for the next three years.
In a career spanning more than 20 years, Hockley represented New Zealand in 19 Tests and accumulated 1301 runs at an average of 52.04, after making her debut in 1979.
She also played in 118 one-day internationals, amassing 4064 runs at an average of 41.89.
Another former White Fern, Ingrid Cronin-Knight, has been appointed as an NZC director.
At its annual general meeting, NZC also announced an operating loss of $2.16 million for the financial year - an improvement on the $5 million loss it was forecasting.
The reduced loss was due mainly to increased gate-takings and increased distributions from World Cricket.
