Incumbent New Zealand selectors Ross Dykes and Brian McKechnie have joined their former chairman Sir Richard Hadlee in retaining their jobs through until 2005.

New Zealand Cricket announced today that their appointments had been confirmed. Their immediate task will be to assist in the selection of the New Zealand team for the tour of India and Pakistan. While Ashley Ross will assist in the selection of this team, the arrival of John Bracewell will see him join the panel with Ross dropping out.
