Template:Infobox Test team


The New Zealand cricket team, also known as the Black Caps, played their first Test in 1930 vs England in Christchurch, New Zealand. It took the team until 1956 to win a Test, against the West Indies at Eden Park in Auckland. They played their first ODI in the 1972 1973 season vs Pakistan in Christchurch.

The current captain is Stephen Fleming, who follows in the footsteps of former greats such as John R. Reid, Geoff Howarth and Martin Crowe. Stephen Fleming is the Black Caps' most successful captain, having led New Zealand to 23 Test victories (to April 2005), more than double that of any other captain.
