Please bear in mind the following points when viewing the data.
- 1968 & 1972 Women's World Series data is missing, we are attempting various avenues to locate this important information.
- Various scorecards have been misplaced meaning not all New Zealand players are represented and information for included players maybe absent.
- ‘Year’ column refers to the first year a player played for New (May be add as to our records at time of website notification)
- Some of the data contain games that are not true Caps. True Caps policy came into effect August 2010 i.e. World Series/Test Series containing true National Team
New Zealand Representative Caps
In detail a full international test cap will be awarded when:
- A full New Zealand senior team is made up of 17 players or less – as per ISF rules (where two teams are selected one must be the senior or number one team in order for caps to be considered), and
- This New Zealand team (including replacement players, if required) subsequently plays a full senior team that is representing another country based on the parameters that exist in the ISF rules
- Where two teams are selected from a country, if one team is not clearly identified as the senior team, then no test caps will be awarded for games against either team
- Where a world or region of countries selection team is created, as long as the team is selected based on the best available representatives of a country, then a full test cap will be awarded
- Test caps will not be awarded against B teams, second teams, club teams or underage teams from another country or a group of countries.
Games for New Zealand would be all games played against all opposition for a full New Zealand team.
