Former Kiwi bowler Gavin Larsen has been appointed new selector for New Zealand cricket. Mr. Gavin replaced Bruce Edgar to become selector. In his cricketing career Larsen played 8 tests (24 wickets) and 121 ODIs (113 wickets).
New Zealand Cricket Head of Cricket Lindsay Crocker said, “Gavin will be a real asset. His breadth of experience – as a player, as a Cricket World Cup administrator and a former chief executive of Cricket Wellington means he’s stayed close and connected to the game.”
Gavin Larsen was associated with New Zealand cricket team as Cricket Operations Manager during the 2015 world cup. He is happy to get such kind of big opportunity and new role for Blackcaps cricket.
He said, “I have the utmost respect and admiration for the way the Blackcaps have moved things forward under Mike’s direction and I’m looking forward to helping that progress continue.It’s impossible not to be impressed by the consistency and stability of the selection process in recent years, which, I believe, points to excellence in terms of leadership.”
