NZ Cricket gets $1.3m for new offices

New Zealand Cricket is to be given $US1 million ($NZ1.3 million) by the International Cricket Council (ICC) to help it into new offices after its premises in Christchurch were destroyed in the February 22 earthquake.

The ICC executive board said in a statement today it had agreed to donate $US1 million from the profits of the cricket World Cup to get New Zealand Cricket into a new building after its Hereford Street base was badly damaged in the 6.3 quake.

New Zealand Cricket was operating out of temporary offices at Lincoln University and had been forced to postpone a tour to Bangladesh in the wake of the disaster.
