New Zealand Cricket (NZC) Chairman Chris Moller has announced that he will quit from his post in September 2013.

Moller, a former New Zealand rugby Union chief executive told, “I have been chairman of New Zealand Cricket for three years and a director for five years, the same duration that I chose to be involved in New Zealand rugby and being chairman is a hugely time-consuming role.”

He further added, “I also think it is in the best interests of cricket in New Zealand for a new chairman to be inducted into the International Cricket Council (ICC) during the tenure of Alan Isaac as president so as to best-facilitate the new chair’s entry to the council.”

Moller’s role came under extreme scrutiny when New Zealand coach Mike Hesson asked for the resignation of Ross Taylor from captaincy in December 2012
