Sophie Devine named permanent captain of New Zealand women's cricket team

Sophie Devine named permanent captain of New Zealand women's cricket team

Wellington, Jul 9 (UNI) All-rounder Sophie Devine will be the new captain of the New Zealand women's cricket team and Amy Satterthwaite her deputy, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) announced on Thursday.

"Sophie Devine has been confirmed as the WHITE FERNS captain with Amy Satterthwaite to take the role of vice-captain following her return from maternity leave," NZC said in statement.

Devine took over the White Ferns captaincy in an interim capacity last season, and her strong leadership led to her being offered the captaincy on a full-time basis.

The all-rounder has played 105 ODIs and 91 T20 Internationals for the White Ferns, scoring a total of 4954 runs and picked 158 wickets.

Satterthwaite will return after maternity leave and will form a key part of the leadership group as the team work towards the ICC Women's Cricket World Cup 2021 to be hosted by New Zealand early next year.

Devine is chuffed with the full-time role and hopes to perform even better with the guidance of Satterthwaite.

"It's a huge honour and privilege to be awarded the White Ferns captaincy. I thoroughly enjoyed my time as captain over the past season. It was challenging results-wise at times, but I feel we are moving in the right direction as a team, both with our cricket and our team culture," said Devine.

"I'm very much looking forward to working with Amy who has an exceptional cricketing brain and I feel we can form a strong leadership partnership in combination with a well-established leadership group," she added.
