New Zealand Cricket (NZC) have elected former international player Martin Snedden as their new chair. He will fill in the role vacated by Greg Barclay, who had to step down to assume duties as the newly-elected chairman of the International Cricket Council.

Snedded, who played 25 Tests and 93 ODIs, is a former chief executive of NZC and has served as the board member of the organisation from 1990-1992, 1999-2001 and again from 2013-present. He was also a member of the ICC chief executives committee from 2001-2007 and comes with a vast experience in the business of sport, having held roles as chief executive of Rugby World Cup 2011, Duco Promotions, and Tourism Association NZ, as well as being a director of the World Masters Games 2017.

"I'd like to thank Greg for the outstanding direction and guidance he's given the board since being elected as chair in 2016," Snedden said. "It is a measure of the success he has overseen in this role that he has now been elected the ICC chair.

"Equally, I'd like to thank my fellow NZC directors for their support. I know that, together with chief executive David White and his excellent management team, we'll help lead the sport out of this global pandemic and embrace a strong and sustainable future.

"I look forward to working with the members of NZC, the Major Associations and Districts Associations, as well as the New Zealand Cricket Players Association and the wider cricket family in New Zealand."
