Amy Satterthwaite, the vice-captain of the New Zealand Womens Cricket Team, has retired from international cricket following a scintillating 15-year career, the New Zealand Cricket Board announced Thursday. New Zealand vice-captain, She called time on her dazzling cricketing career after being offered a one-year playing contract by New Zealand Cricket for the 2022-23 season. Furthermore, She is disappointed in the timing of her international cricketing retirement following the NZCs decision to not offer her a centre-forwards contract. The retirement from international cricket came following the failure to secure a central contract for the 2022-23 season.

Amy Satterthwaite is set to continue to play domestic cricket with Canterbury, while also having an ongoing contract at the Manchester Originals, where she was involved in a womens hundred match in August. White Ferns Vice-Captain, will continue to play domestic cricket for Canterbury Magicians and has a contract with the Manchester Originals in the Womens Hundred in August.

New Zealand Crickets chief executive for high-performance cricket, Brian Stronach, said Satterthwaite has made an enormous commitment to White Fern’s climate, both as player and as pioneer. White Ferns World Cup mentor, Bob Carter, said White Ferns vice-captain can take satisfaction in the things she has achieved in her career. Satterthwaite scored seven centuries and 27 half-centuries, scoring 4,639 runs at an average of 38.33 — and similarly took 50 wickets in ODIs at just under while also making 1,784 runs for her country in Twenty20 matches. Satterthwaite, who was the New Zealand captain for 2018 and 2019, made her debut in 2007, going on to score 111 T20Is and 145 ODIs, the latter being a New Zealand record.

Amy Satterthwaite has pulled back the curtains on an impressive 15-year international career, but does not rule out playing on at domestic level, with a return to the Weber WBBL possible. Amy Satterthwaite is looking forward to spending more time with family, as well as keeping a hand in cricket and giving back to a game she says has given her so much. It was with a bat in her hands that New Zealands vice-captain, Amy Satterthwaite, would be remembered most fondly, having scored a top-scoring knock in the T20 World Cup 2016 and making four consecutive centuries in ODIs from 2016-17 — becoming just the second cricketer, after Sri Lankan great Kumar Sangakkara, to accomplish this feat.

Bryan Stronach, the general manager of high-performance for New Zealand, has heaped praise on the achievements of New Zealand batsman Amy Satterthwaite, but explained the purpose of the contracted list – to be confirmed on Friday – is to get a few new players and to have an emphasis on T20I cricket, with the Commonwealth Games coming up next year, followed by the T20 World Cup at the start of 2023. I am disappointed to have not received the contract and feel that there is more that I can contribute; I respect NZC’s decision, though, and wish the White Ferns the best as the White Ferns head into a thrilling winter of cricket, including the Commonwealth Games, said in a statement.
