NEWS: Priest In Exile & Bermingham ‘Taking A Break’ As New Zealand Announce West Indies Squads

The White Ferns squads have been announced for their up-coming ODI and T20 series versus the West Indies, with coach Haidee Tiffen keeping a firm eye on the future as New Zealand look towards a home World Cup in 2021.

The ODI squad includes two potential debutantes: left-arm seamer Kate Heffernan and batsman Lauren Down, with Tiffen saying:

“We see an immense amount of potential in Kate, particularly as we look ahead a bit further to a World Cup in New Zealand in 2021… and we also think [Lauren’s] one for the future – she’s explosive with the bat and is a terrific fielder across the park.”

After a successful Women’s Big Bash with the Melbourne Renegades where she placed 12th in our bowling rankings with 15 wickets at a shade over 6, Hayley Jensen earns a recall to the T20 squad; but despite Tiffen saying that the squads were “picked on form” there is still no room for keeper-batsman Rachel Priest, despite her scoring over 250 runs at a Strike Rate of 119 in WBBL.

Meanwhile spinner Erin Bermingham has decided to take an indefinite break from international cricket and was not available for either squad.
