For the upcoming ICC Women’s World cup 2017 New Zealand Cricket Board has been announced the Squad of Youth and Experience players of 15 Member. 16-year old legspinner Amelia Kerr is included in the list and the teenager is all set to create history as the youngest ever White Ferns’ representative in the history of World Cup.
“We’ve had a lot of players put their hands up domestically, internationally and during our two recent camps – so the last few spots were particularly fiercely contested,” coach Haidee Tiffen said.
“I’m really happy with the balance of the squad. I think it’s a strong team who are certainly capable of bringing that cup home. It’s really exciting to have Amelia in the squad and she’s proved herself more than ready for the big stage, and with the likes of Suzie, Amy Satterthwaite, Katey Martin and Sophie Devine we are not short on leaders in the group,” she added.

Squad: Suzie Bates (c), Katey Martin, Erin Bermingham, Thamsyn Newton, Amy Satterthwaite, Lea Tahuhu, Sophie Devine, Amelia Kerr , Rachel Priest, Maddy Green, Holly Huddleston, Katie Perkins, Anna Peterson, Hannah Rowe and Leigh Kasperek.
