Nominated by a panel that included Kiwi great Richard Hadlee, Edgar, 56, will join head coach Mike Hesson next month to select teams for all formats of the game. "Bruce is highly respected within the cricket fraternity and he was a very successful player both on and off the field," NZC chief executive David White said in a statement. "He is considered, methodical and logical with exceptionally good attention to detail." A veteran of 39 tests and 64 one-dayers, Edgar said he was looking forward to working with Hesson ahead of the 2015 World Cup. "Players need to be given opportunities to bridge the gap between first class cricket and the international stage. I would like to see players given experience in the sub-continent and with local conditions in other countries," said Edgar.

Shutterstock Lake Wanaka, New Zealand. When traipsing through the emerald hills and dairy farms of Matamata, about two hours south of Auckland, you can see the setting for Hobbiton; hiking through the Tongariro National Park, a more than 300-square-mile park lined with volcanoes and lakes, youll catch a glimpse of Mordor; driving near Glenorchy, a rustic town on lightning-bolt-shaped Lake Wakatipu, youll see the setting for the fortress of Isengard. For those who prefer hiking (in New Zealand, they call it tramping), skiing and scenic views, there are no shortage of peaks: Roughly one fifth of the North Island and two-thirds of the South Island (these are New Zealands two primary islands) are made up of mountains. For those who want the beach, New Zealand offers more than 9,000 miles of coastline, ranging from sunbathing refuges and surfing-worthy beaches to the more rugged shoreline along the southern portion of South Island. There are hot springs around Rotorua and Hanmer Springs, and myriad fiords that were created as mountains sank into the sea thousands of years ago.
Nelsons Saxton Oval will host its first mens international cricket match and New Zealand will return to Queenstown when the West Indies tour the country in December and January. As part of the International Series, the West Indies will play three Tests, five One Day Internationals and two Twenty20 Internationals in eight towns and cities from Auckland to Queenstown, with the three Tests at the countrys premier Test venues in Dunedin, Wellington and Hamilton. In a move to take the New Zealand to top holiday spots over the Christmas/New Year period, Napier will host the second ODI on 29 December, the action will move to Queenstown on New Years Day, and three days later the New Zealand side will head to Nelson. New Zealand Cricket Chief Executive Officer David White says the intention is to build an annual series of matches at popular holiday destinations with international grounds. It will be fantastic to see New Zealand playing in these hotspots and were hopeful the holiday crowds will be out in force to support their national side. And were delighted to bring Boxing Day action back to our biggest city as these matches at Eden Park have been really successful in the past. Nelson Cricket Association General Manager Ed Shuttleworth says they are extremely proud to be hosting their first mens international. To bring international cricket to our region has been a goal for many years and achieving this is a moment of real pride for all those involved in developing cricket and the facilities in the region. The legacy of international cricket will be significant with participation increasing and kids being inspired by seeing the New Zealand side in their home town. Saxton Oval has previously held a womens international and will host three pool matches during ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Queenstown Lakes District Council Chief Executive Adam Feeley says the announcement is great news for Queenstown and a wonderful chance to showcase the districts attractions. We are sure that an exciting team like the West Indies will attract a great crowd and demonstrate why Queenstown supports major sporting events. Fresh off the announcement Wellington and Auckland will host playoff matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, White says the matches played at the Wellington Stadium and Eden Park will provide these venues with good preparation for the tournament. White is still awaiting details of the Indian tour planned for late January and February 2014. I have to admit discussions with the Board of Control for Cricket in India have taken longer than we hoped but we should be able to announce the tour schedule in the next few weeks. There will be an announcement in November on ticketing for the International Series. New Zealand v West Indies
