New Zealand player Amy Satterthwaite will work as the team captain of the Melbourne Renegades on the upcoming WBBL.
New Zealand cricketer Amy Satterthwaite will resume her role as the team captain of the Melbourne Renegades after returning from the maternity leave which she took. Last season, it may be recalled that Satterthwaite passed on the captaincy to Jess Duffin for the fifth season of the WBBL.
Satterthwaite returns to the team alongside her wife Lea Tahuhu who plays as a fast bowler. As they return to the team, they will also be bringing their daughter Grace who was born last January to be with them on their journey.
As per the 33-year-old player, ‘It'll be great to rejoin the team in a playing capacity this season after Jess (Duffin) did such a fantastic job leading the group last year. I've enjoyed getting back into training in recent months and I've embraced the challenge of working on my game after a few sleepless nights, but it's all good fun. I'm looking forward to working alongside our new coach Lachie Stevens and seeing what the team can achieve’.
Aside from Sattherthwaite and Tahuhu, the Melbourne Renegades will also get to welcome 22-year-old Erin Fazackerley who joins the squad after spending three seasons with the Hobart Hurricanes. To learn more about the different teams of the WBBL, check out Betwala.
