Satterthwaite and Tahuhu back for New Zealand
Amy Satterthwaite and Lea Tahuhu will return to the New Zealand line-up after being chosen for September's tour of the West Indies. A 14-player squad has been picked for the trip, which includes four ODIs and three Twenty20 internationals.
Satterthwaite and Tahuhu have replaced Katey Martin and Frances Mackay in the only changes from the squad that played in the World T20 in Bangladesh earlier this year. Coach Hamish Barton said both players deserved to be back in the squad.
"We gave Amy and Lea some areas to work on and we've been really impressed with their commitment to do what has been asked of them," Barton said. "Both of them have shown in the past that they're world-class and they've still got a lot to offer. They've worked incredibly hard to get back in the side and I'm confident they'll take this opportunity.
"We've got a number of exciting young players in the side and this tour will be a huge step in their development. However it's equally important to have players with experience and knowledge of the conditions and we have that too, so we've got the right mix."
