Bracewell was stopped while driving in Hastings on March 18th and was three times over the limit, returning a breath alcohol reading of 783 micrograms per litre of breath, well over he 250 limit.

The 26-year-old was convicted in the district court in Hastings today.

Bracewell said he made a massive mistake by driving that night and has apologised unreservedly for his actions.

"This was no-one's fault but my own; I take full responsibility, and I'm deeply embarrassed to have let down so many people - be they family, friends, or cricket lovers.", he said.

He will be sentenced next month under the provisions for offenders who have two or more previous drink-drive convictions.

New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said he can't discuss if the organisation will seek to impose its own penalty, while the case is still before the courts.
