Debbie Hockley played 118 one-day internationals and scored 4064 runs, including four hundreds and 34 fifties. Her Test career was equally impressive: four hundreds in 19 Tests, and an average of 52.04. She was the first woman to reach the landmark of 4000 ODI runs, and also the first to play 100 ODIs. She scored two World Cup centuries and was the first to aggregate 1500 runs, and play 40-plus matches in World Cups. In November 2016, she became the first woman to be elected New Zealand Cricket president.
