Ben Sawyer said that it’s a real bonus to have Jess back in the squad after injury ruled her out of the Sri Lanka tour.
“Kate had an outstanding domestic season last year and was unfortunate to miss the Sri Lanka tour through injury. We like her power and skills with the bat and we’re looking forward to giving her an opportunity on the international stage. Bella’s an exciting young prospect who hits the ball hard and is an outstanding fielder, so she’s got all the attributes that we want from a White Fern,” Sawyer was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.
“It’s a real bonus to have Jess back in the squad after injury ruled her out of the Sri Lanka tour,” Sawyer said. She’s got a world-class bowling skill set and is especially effective with her in-swinger, which is proving more and more difficult in the women’s game,”. Ben Sawyer mentioned.
