INZBC is delighted to assert the presence of Sir Richard Hadlee. Kt. Bach. M.B.E. Hon. DLitt as its Official Patron.
Sir Richard, regarded by most as New Zealand's greatest ever cricketer, was characterised by Sir Donald Bradman as "the master of rhythm and swing. Also ranked by the cricketer's bible Wisden as (by their own statistical analysis) the 2nd best Test bowler in history, Sir Richard now enters a new phase in his magnificent career by parlaying his still-immense personal profile in India for the benefit of INZBC members wherever possible.
It is only appropriate that New Zealand's greatest ever cricketer associates with New Zealand's leading organisation that is dedicated to its greatest future market and social economic partner.
As relationships develop and strengthen in the coming years, INZBC looks forward to having Sir Richard alongside and working with Council and members alike for the betterment of the stakeholder community at large.
