As an allrounder, senior team member and vice captain, Sophie Devine has become an integral part of the New Zealand Women team.
Having started off as a bowler who could bat a bit, Devine steadily improved her batting, to the point that it arguably became her stronger suit. Though she made a couple of ODI half-centuries in 2010, she emphatically established her batting credentials with an imperious 145 against South Africa in New Zealand's opening match of the 2013 Women's World Cup in India.
She did not score another century since, but was reasonably consistent, managing a number of starts and scoring four ODI fifties across three countries. By March 2016, she had also scored three fifties in T20Is.
Meanwhile, she continued to contribute to the team's cause as a right-arm pacer.
Devine's sporting talents are not reserved for cricket alone - she has represented New Zealand in hockey as well.
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
