Coach Captain – Stephen Fleming
Former Black Caps captain Stephen Fleming was one of the most stylish left-handed batsmen ever to grace the black cap.
Also one of the game’s deepest thinkers, Fleming became New Zealand’s youngest ever captain at just 23.
Now 45, he is the brains behind the success of the Chenai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League.
Team Manager – Scott ‘Razor’ Robertson
Coach – Sir Graham Henry
Sir Graham etched his name into New Zealand sporting history when he masterminded the hoodoo-breaking 2011 Rugby World Cup victory – New Zealand’s first triumph since 1987.
The victory, thanks to a nail-biting 8-7 final triumph over France, came despite the All Blacks suffering a relentless string of injuries to key players.
In Henry’s eight years in charge of the All Blacks, the team claimed a series victory over the British and Irish Lions in 2005, five Tri Nations titles and three Grand Slams to go with the 2011 world cup triumph.
A right-handed wicket keeper batsman in his day, Henry played first class cricket for Canterbury and Otago.
