Christopher Mary Kuggeleijn played two Tests in 1988-89 and 16 One Day Internationals for New Zealand in 1988 and 1989. His biggest contribution came in just the third over of his Test debut at Bangalore, when he took the catch that gave Richard Hadlee the record number of Test wickets at the time. He later coached the Northern Districts cricket team and the Hamilton Boys' High School 1st XI which, under his tutelage was national champion twice. Kuggeleijn was of Dutch extraction, which accounts for his unusual middle name of Mary. Kuggeleijn also played for Hamilton in the Hawke Cup. Kuggeleijn's son Scott plays for the Wellington Firebirds in the Plunket Shield.
