New Zealand have recalled Anna Peterson, Kate Broadmore and Erin Bermingham for the home limited-overs series against England Women next month. The 14-member squad also included Central Districts' 18-year-old right-arm seamer Hannah Rowe.
Peterson played last of her three ODIs in 2012, while Broadmore's previous international game was almost two years ago. Bermingham, too, has been out of the international side since October 2013.
"Players like Kate [Broadmore] and Erin [Birmingham] have performed all season long in the domestic competition and thoroughly deserve their recall," Hamish Barton, the New Zealand coach, said.
"Hannah [Rowe] has been another player we've been really impressed with and offers us something different with the ball due to her height," Barton said. "She's still early on in her career, but has a lot of talent and we're excited to have her in the group.
"It's also been pleasing to see our experienced players continuing to work hard and lead the way for their provincial teams. Suzie, Amy and Sara have all averaged over 70 with the bat in the domestic one day competition, while Holly and Lea have also maintained their good form with the ball.
The series against England begins on February 11 in Mount Maunganui and features three ODIs as part of the International Women's Championship, three Twenty20s and two additional ODIs.
"England have shown what a force they are over recent years and pose a huge challenge, but we've got an exciting squad with a lot of ability and we'll head into the series confident," he said.
