White Ferns name squad for Rose Bowl series
Allrounder Sarah Tsukigawa has returned to the New Zealand women's squad in place of Maria Fahey for the first two Twenty20 international matches of the Rose Bowl series that will be played in Hamilton and Nelson on December 28 and December 30. Aimee Watkins will captain the team.
The squad was selected after three trial Twenty20 games that were played last weekend. The remaining six matches of the eight-match series will be played from February 18 to 28, when Australia will return to New Zealand. The team will be reselected at that point.
The selections of Rachel Priest and Erin Bermingham are conditional on their passing a fitness test on December 15.
New Zealand squad: Aimee Watkins (capt), Suzie Bates, Erin Bermingham, Kate Broadmore, Nicola Browne, Sophie Devine, Natalie Dodd, Lucy Doolan, Sara McGlashan, Liz Perry, Rachel Priest, Sian Ruck, Amy Satterthwaite, Sarah Tsukigawa
