Robbie Hart, the former Test wicketkeeper, has been appointed to the board of New Zealand Cricket (NZC) to replace the former chairman Alan Isaac, who is now the vice-president of the ICC.

Hart, 35, was elected at NZC's annual general meeting in Wellington, where he joined the former spin bowler Stephen Boock as the only ex-Test cricketers on the eight-member board.

A gloveman who represented New Zealand in 11 Tests and two one-day internationals, Hart also spent 12 years playing for Northern Districts before his retirement in August 2004.

Hart also has a background in law and corporate affairs, and until recently served on the board of the New Zealand Cricket Players Association.
