Fabian Pathirana (Chair)
My love for cricket started in the 1980’s in Sri Lanka, I have been passionate about the game ever since, I have played at all age levels and played Division One Cricket in Sri Lanka and also played Club Cricket in England, Australia and New Zealand.
I am also on the Board of the Melville Cricket Club and played for them in Senior levels in Premiers and Senior A. I would like to add value to the HCA and serve the game. My son Ravi Pathirana has represented NDCA at the junior level and he is currently with CDCA senior teams.
I would love to see cricket rise in popularity again and share my leadership qualities, skills and knowledge to the game where ever I can.

Cricket has been a lifelong passion for me. In high school I played cricket to a regional level and also played Mens Reserve Grade level cricket.

I have been fortunate to have played over 130 games of Domestic cricket having come through the age group pathways in Northern Districts.
I am passionate about getting more people playing and enjoying cricket with a particular interest in the women’s and girls side drawing on my experience through my time playing.
Outside of cricket I am a chartered accountant and have an interest in a number of sports having also previously played representative rugby and futsal in the Waikato.
I am an Engineer and currently work for Hamilton City Council. Throughout my career I have held a range of roles in project management and asset management, in both the local government and consulting sectors.
Over the past 20 years I have contributed to various volunteer boards and committees, including as the Board of Trustees Chairperson at Hamilton East Primary School.
I have been introduced to cricket over the past 12 years through my two sons who both play, and I have come to love the game. I am excited to be part of the HCA Board and hope that as a team we can promote the game of cricket for juniors, women and men.

I have been playing cricket in Hamilton for the last 15 seasons, so am well versed with the history and culture of the Association.
I am a Hamilton lad through and through, having attended Hamilton Boys High School and completing my Degree at Waikato University, while now being employed in the City.
I am currently Vice-President of the Melville Cricket Club and am looking to use my experience and networking to help develop Hamilton Cricket. This involves the relationships with the different clubs and players to drive Hamilton Cricket improvement.
I have been involved in senior cricket in Hamilton in varied capacities for over 48 years. This includes playing club and twilight as well as a three year stint on the HCA Board in the late 1970’s and again in the mid 1990’s before accepting a role as the General Manager a position which I held and enjoyed for 23 years.
