The International Cricket Council (ICC) has congratulated former New Zealand captain Amy Satterthwaite for an impressive 15-year international career during which she played in several ICC events and bilateral series.

The 35-year-old all-rounder, who announced her retirement on Thursday, was part of the New Zealand squad at this year’s ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup and is her country’s most-capped ODI player.

Satterthwaite’s career high points include the then best Women’s T20I match figures of six for 17 against England in 2007 and four consecutive centuries in ODIs in 2016-17.

ICC Chief Executive Geoff Allardice said Satterthwaite was a hero for many and hoped that she would continue to be associated with the game.

ICC Chief Executive Geoff Allardice: “Amy has been a prominent name in women’s cricket for a very long time. She has been one of the best performers for her country during such a pivotal time for the growth of the women’s game, inspiring a new generation of fans and players.

“On behalf of the ICC, I congratulate Amy for a successful career and hope she continues to stay involved in the game. I wish her all the best for the future.”

Satterthwaite, a left-handed batter, aggregated 4,639 runs with seven centuries and 27 half-centuries in 145 ODIs. In 111 T20Is, she scored 1,784 runs with one half-century. Her off-spin bowling got her 50 wickets in ODIs and 26 in T20Is.
