All-rounder Amy Satterthwaite, who hails from Canterbury, is a right-arm medium pacer who bats left-handed. Known as "Branch" due to her distinct height advantage, she debuted for her state side - the Canterbury Magicians - in 2003, aged 16. After scoring a century on the Canterbury team's tour of England in 2006, Satterthwaite was selected for the New Zealand A team, for matches against the White Ferns and India in 2006.
She was called up to the main New Zealand squad for the Rose Bowl series against Australia in July 2007, and made her ODI and T20I debuts. A month later, Satterthwaite was selected for the tour of England, where she was omitted from the first two matches, before she stunned everyone with the best figures in Women's T20Is, taking 6-17 with her medium pace as New Zealand won the match by 38 runs.
Since then, she has predominantly made her mark with the bat at the international level, hammering runs as a regular feature of the New Zealand middle order. She was named the New Zealand Women's Player of the Year in October 2012, having averaged 51.75 during the judging period, and hit her maiden international century in December 2012 against Australia. She followed this up with scores of 103 and 85 in successive matches against England in the 2013 Women's World Cup, helping her team finish fourth in the tournament.
Offered one of the first-ever semi-professional women's contracts by New Zealand Cricket in April 2013, Satterthwaite turned down the opportunity, stating: "It wasn't for me at this time". She was omitted from the squad for the 2014 Women's World Twenty20, but forced her way back into contention for the tour of West Indies later that year, and by July, 2015, had impressed enough to ensure she was added to the list of centrally contracted players - this time around, she accepted the offer.
Having topped the batting averages in the 2016 Women's World Twenty20, she was called up to play in the inaugural Super League in England as a replacement for Sarah Coyte.
