Christopher Mary Kuggeleijn (born 10 May 1956) played two Tests in 1988-89 and 16 One Day Internationals for New Zealand in 1988 and 1989. He played domestic cricket for Northern Districts and also played for Hamilton in the Hawke Cup.

Kuggeleijn was of Dutch extraction, which accounts for his unusual middle name of Mary. Kuggeleijn's son Scott also plays for Northern Districts in the Plunket Shield.

International career[edit]

His biggest contribution came in just the third over of his Test debut at Bangalore, when he took the catch (India's Arun Lal) that gave Richard Hadlee the record number of Test wickets (374) at the time.[1]

After cricket[edit]

He later coached Northern Districts and the Hamilton Boys' High School 1st XI which, under his tutelage was national champion twice.
