The Autumn edition of Outright magazine is out now.
It barely warrants explanation now that we are in the third year of it, but the global pandemic has once again provided us with one of the more challenging summers to date for our members and stakeholders of the game. Despite the disappointment of The White Ferns missing the semi-finals of the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup and the red light covid restrictions, the tournament set the bar high for the Rugby and Football World Cups to follow with a sell-out crowd at Hagley Oval to witness Australia defeat England in the final.
Amidst the backdrop of this disruption the international and domestic schedules were continually modified and adapted to provide largely uninterrupted seasons, albeit with no crowds for the bulk of fixtures. This is a great testament to the immense work everyone has put in to make this possible, particularly the staff at NZC.
We look forward to a busy winter touring programme for our Blackcaps who are heading to the United Kingdom to play England in three tests, followed by a number of ODIs and T20s against Ireland, Scotland, The Netherlands and West Indies, before returning to Australia for the ICC T20 World Cup.
Dane Cleaver is among the Blackcaps tour to Europe and features in this edition of Outright with a snapshot of how he has changed paths from psychology to finance. Former Wellington and Auckland all-rounder Mayu Pasupati is our past player feature this month as we get an insight into his world of medical devices. Canterbury Magician Kristy Havill shares her busy life as a journalist, commentator, and clay target shooting silver medallist.
Kirsty Bond reflects upon the success of a secondary schools selection taking on a 1st XI of former Internationals in a day where these past internationals could give back to the next generation of female cricketers.
We caught up with new NZCPA staff member Greg Dawson, who is welcomed to our team following the internal promotion of Lesley Elvidge to National Personal Development Manager. Greg is the new PDM for the Canterbury and Otago Men’s teams.
