STATS: New Zealand v South Africa Player Rankings – The Amy Satterthwaite Show!

New Zealand’s 7-match ODI series in South Africa ended this week with the visitors sealing a 5-2 victory, with Amy Satterthwaite scoring her 3rd 50 of the series in the final match, as the White Ferns posted 273 – South Africa slumping to 147 all out in reply.

The numbers below show this was very-much Satterthwaite’s series – she topped the batting rankings with 344 runs at an average of 69 and the bowling rankings with 11 wickets going at under 3 an over.

For New Zealand, Katey Martin and Rachel Priest (with the bat) and Erin Bermingham and Morna Nielsen (with the ball) also put in their shifts, as Suzie Bates was eclipsed for once – coming in at 6th in the batting rankings, and at 13th in the bowling, having not bowled a huge amount of overs. The selectors will probably not be worried by Bates’ personal form – there is a positive to be taken out of it in terms of their strengths elsewhere; but they will want to be sure that Bates does get an opportunity to rest properly at some stage before the World Cup, after basically playing non-stop for the past year or so.

For South Africa, Mignon du Preez emphasised her continued importance to the team after relinquishing the captaincy with 232 runs; whist Ayabonga Khaka had a bit of a breakthrough with 11 wickets – she’d taken just 6 wickets in 14 ODIs prior to this series.

  1. complicated by SEVEN game series… and the stats are being complicated by the Womens Championship being defined as a series, but the best batting in bi-lateral series seems to be:
    Rolton 03/04 vNZ (6) 394
    Edwards 03/04 vSA (5) 380
    Beaumont 2016 vPak (3) 342
    Lanning 14/15 vWI (4) 336
    Taylor SC 2005 vAus (5) 325

    putting Satterthwaite in some good company. England come off pretty well here, Edwards best in a traditional 5 game series, and Taylor as part of summer when Eng beat the Aussies at home for the first time in 42 years (not clear how strong NZ were in 03/04 in comparison).
