Having been in the team for five years and notching up over 40 One Day caps, Amy Satterthwaite knows the ins and outs of international cricket.
Amy delivered on the promise she displayed early on in her career and has developed into a dependable batsman for the White Ferns. She is also the vice-captain.
The 25 year-old made a name for herself after a number of impressive outings for the Canterbury Magicians. In July 2007 she was selected to play Australia in a Twenty20, two days later playing in her first 50 over match against the Aussies.
Despite being a left handed batsman, Amy has also proven herself to be a useful right-arm medium bowler. In fact many of her strike bowler teammates will be envious of her Twenty20 career best figures of 6/17.
At only 25 Amy still has much to offer on the international stage and will no doubt keep improving with time. Amy enjoys golf, squash and farming in her spare time and has aspirations to become a veterinarian.
