NEWS: Morna Nielsen and Amy Satterthwaite Join Kia Super League

New Zealanders Morna Nielsen and Amy Satterthwaite have become the latest international stars to sign for the inaugural Kia Super League.

The pair replace Australians Megan Schutt – who is injured – and Sarah Coyte – who has decided not to travel to England for personal reasons.

Nielsen, a left-arm spinner who is currently the ICC’s number two-ranked T20 bowler, will be playing for the Southern Vipers, alongside teammates Suzie Bates and Sara McGlashan.

Meanwhile Amy Satterthwaite – who topped the batting averages in the recent Women’s World Twenty20 – will help to strengthen the batting line-up of Lancashire Thunder in the likely absence of Sarah Taylor.

The Kia Super League kicks off on Saturday 30th July when Yorkshire Diamonds play Loughborough Lightning at Headingley.

  1. Although it will be a shame not to see the 2 Australians over here in the KSL this year, these are 2 very capable replacements who I think will add more balance to both squads. Southern Vipers needed another spinner anyway; Satterthwaite is a decent T20 bowler as well as good batsman so Lancs Thunder won’t lose out much in either department.
