img_3613

The New Zealand WHITE FERNS made short work of their Sri Lankan opponents in the final contest after electing to bowl first at a warm, sunny but blustery Saxton Oval as a sou’wester buffeted Nelson. Video Scorecard A strong turnout on the banks was treated to watching composed 20-year-old Thamsyn Newton step up for New Zealand with her first three wickets, in her third game.

White Ferns

The New Zealand WHITE FERNS have taken an unbeatable 2-0 lead in their Twenty20 International Series — but not without a fight from Sri Lanka. Scorecard As the maiden bilateral T20 Series moved to Nelson, Sri Lanka adapted quicker to fresh conditions, light rain having swept across Saxton Oval ahead of the game. It wasn’t enough to deter captain Suzie Bates from electing to bat but, at 28/3 in the sixth over it was Sri Lanka who, for the first time in the Series, held the early advantage. Opener Bates played a captain’s knock, falling just one ball short of carrying her bat as she was run out off the final delivery of the innings. By then, the player of… Read More →

img_2065

The New Zealand WHITE FERNS continued their domination of Sri Lanka with the second 10-wicket win of their inaugural ODI Series — helped by a maiden five-wicket bag from leading spinner Morna Nielsen in the fourth One-Day International. The win takes the WHITE FERNS’ lead to 4-0 in the historic contest.  Scorecard A fixture in the side since 2010, 25-year-old Nielsen’s previous best was 3-12. That was bettered as she combined with Anna Peterson to take three wickets in the space of 11 balls through the middle, then eclipsed — as teammates nervously held their breath — by the second to last ball of her lean 10 overs. Player of the match as she snuck into the list of top 10 all-time… Read More →
