Sophie Devine to continue as captain, Amy Satterthwaite appointed as her deputy

Sophie Devine will continue to captain the White Ferns and Amy Satterthwaite will assist her.

Satterthwaite was appointed as the captain but she had to take rest due to her pregnancy and took maternity leave. During the interim, Devine was appointed as the captain.

Now, Devine will be continuing as the captain despite Satterthwaite returning to the squad.

“It’s a huge honour and privilege to be awarded the White Ferns captaincy,” said Devine in a statement. “I thoroughly enjoyed my time as captain over the past season. It was challenging results-wise at times, but I feel we are moving in the right direction as a team, both with our cricket and our team culture.

I’m very much looking forward to working with Amy who has an exceptional cricketing brain and I feel we can form a strong leadership partnership in combination with a well-established leadership group,” she added. Satterthwaite said being the New Zealand captain was a great privilege. “I’m looking forward to returning to international cricket and doing my best to support Sophie and the team,” said Satterthwaite.

The captaincy did produce the best of Devine with the bat who was literally unstoppable throughout the year. It is certainly a good thing that Satterthwaite is getting back into the team.
