Amy Satterthwaite, the New Zealand international cricketer, brings her skills to the Hurricanes after her recent stint in Tasmania with the Cripps Tasmanian Roar. Satterthwaite’s cricketing journey spans various teams and formats, including 61 T20 matches for New Zealand, 4 T20 games for Tasmania, and 51 T20 appearances for the Canterbury Magicians.
Having made her international debut in 2007, Satterthwaite has proven herself as a versatile player. Her bowling abilities are highlighted by her best figures of 6-17. She is equally proficient with the bat, as evidenced by her impressive innings of 87 not out for Tasmania in the last season. In domestic cricket, she has amassed 1271 runs while representing her New Zealand-based side, Canterbury.
Satterthwaite’s exceptional skills reached new heights in 2017 when she achieved a remarkable milestone. She became the first player in Women’s One Day Internationals (WODI) and the second overall, following Kumar Sangakkara in the men’s One Day Internationals (ODI), to score four consecutive centuries. This remarkable feat earned her recognition, as she was honored with the inaugural ICC Women’s ODI Player of the Year award.
In September 2018, Satterthwaite took on the leadership role in the New Zealand team, stepping in as the captain after Suzie Bates decided to step down from the position.
