Sophie Devine named as the captain of the New Zealand Woman's team
It's surely a responsibility for the champ!
Sophie Devine took this step up for the role of the full-time skipper of the New Zealand team. This will go on with split-squad training etc.
She is an all-rounder who has grabbed a lot of recognition taking the front foot with her performance. Sophie was at first the interim captain. But now the organization has seen her potential as a match regulating expert and skipper.
On a recent New Zealand website she said this "It’s a huge honor and privilege to be awarded the WHITE FERNS captaincy. I thoroughly enjoyed my time as captain over the past season. It was challenging results-wise at times, but I feel we are moving in the right direction as a team, both with our cricket and our team culture,"
She also added saying "I’m very much looking forward to working with Amy who has an exceptional cricketing brain and I feel we can form a strong leadership partnership in combination with a well-established leadership group,"
It is clearly seen how white ferns look for a long term endeavor with their preparation for the cricket world cup in the coming year.
