Amy Satterthwaite started playing cricket as soon as she could walk and grew up playing against boys. She made her debut for Canterbury Magicians at the age of 17 and for New Zealand Women at 20 against Australia Women at Darwin in July 2007.
Her best bowling performance followed a month later when she took 6 for 17 against England Women at Taunton in an IT20 fixture. Amy’s first ODI century (109) came against Australia Women in Sydney in December 2012 and was named New Zealand Women's Player of the Year that year.
She broke the women’s world record with four straight ODI centuries against Pakistan and Australia between November 2016 and February 2017. Only Kumar Sangakkara has done the same in men’s ODIs. To date, Amy has played 107 ODIs and 79 International T20s for the White Ferns.
The in-demand left-hander batter was unveiled as the new captain of the Melbourne Renegades in October 2017, signing a three-year deal to play in the Women’s Big Bash League and she was the leading run scorer for the Renegades, and eighth highest, in the 2017/18 WBBL with 368 runs, including 2 fifties, and took 11 wickets.
Amy has captained Lancashire Thunder from the start of the Kia Super League, a role she continues this season, and she has been the leading run scorer for the Thunder in both seasons.
