Hadlee to be inducted in ICC Hall of Fame during Ind-NZ Test

Legendary all-rounder Richard Hadlee will be formally inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame on the first day of third Test between India and New Zealand starting on April 3 in Wellington.

Hadlee will thus become the first New Zealand player to be formally inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame when he receives a commemorative cap to mark the occasion.

Hadlee will also launch the ICC centenary medal during New Zealand's Catch the Spirit week which will be celebrated during the match.

"The medals are a reflection that cricket, like all other sports, could not survive without the selfless acts on behalf of the game by countless volunteers," ICC President David Morgan said in a statement.

Hadlee will present medals to 10 Wellington-based volunteers during the lunch interval on the first day of the third Test. He will also receive his ICC Cricket Hall of Fame cap from ICC President David Morgan.

"The medals are a reflection that cricket, like all other sports, could not survive without the selfless acts on behalf of the game by countless volunteers – coaches, curators, scorers, drivers, security personnel and the such," he said.

"The volunteers are instrumental in preserving cricket’s special values as well as sustaining and developing the game at the grassroots and nurturing the stars of the future," he added.
