Amy Satterthwaite and Rachel Priest are the new faces in the 13-member New Zealand squad for the Rose Bowl Series in Australia in July. Allrounder Suzie Bates is not available for the series, but she will join the side in England.

Satterthwaite, the Canterbury allrounder, and Priest, the wicketkeeper-batsman from Central Districts, were both in the New Zealand A team last summer. Canterbury's Beth McNeil has also been named for the Australian leg of the tour, which will include five ODIs and a Twenty20 match.

Steve Jenkin, the New Zealand coach, said that the squad to England will contain several changes from the one which travels to Australia. "As well as Suzie's return, Rachel Candy will join the squad [in England] for the first time, while Selena Charteris and Sarah Burke of Canterbury will replace Maria Fahey and Sophie Devine, who have told us they are unable to make the tour." New Zealand will play six ODIs and three Twenty20 games against England
