Amy Satterthwaite will be seen playing for New Zealand as the team takes part in a match series against Australia after her maternity break.
Former New Zealand captain Amy Satterthwaite returns to the international scene after her maternity leave. She has last played for the team on March last year and has given birth to her daughter in January. Together with her wife Lea Tahuhu, the two of them will be seen playing in the Ferns' 17-women squad.
With her return, team captain Sophie Devine said, ‘We're definitely going over there to bring back the Rose Bowl. The team are under no illusions - it's going to be a tough task taking on a world-class Australian team. We're an experienced group and having Amy back in the fold only adds to our batting depth and on-field leadership’.
‘Every time you pull on the Fern, you do so with pride. The team have prepared well at winter camps and are looking forward to taking on Australia in their own backyard’, she added.
Even New Zealand’s head coach Bob Carter shared how he and the rest of the team are thrilled to have Amy back. As he had said, Satterthwaite’s records and her experiences in the field will once again be advantageous for the team.
He said, ‘The team has been working hard in winter camps over the past few months and it will be good to put what we've learnt in those sessions into practice against a top quality opposition like Australia’.
Australia and New Zealand will face off in a series of three T20Is and three ODIs which is slated to start on September 26. To further understand the different formats of cricket, check out Betwala.
