Amy Ella Satterthwaite (born 7 October 1986) is a New Zealand cricketer who currently plays for the Canterbury Magicians in the New Zealand State League and the Hobart Hurricanes in the Australian Women's Big Bash League. She has played internationally for New Zealand in women's One Day Internationals (ODI) and women's Twenty20 Internationals (T20I) since 2007, appearing at the Women's Cricket World Cup in 2009 and 2013. On 26 February 2017 against Australia she became the first player in WODI and second overall after Kumar Sangakkara in ODI to score four consecutive hundreds.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Satterthwaite was born in Christchurch in 1986 and grew up in Culverden in north Canterbury.[2] Her father, Michael Satterthwaite, represented Canterbury Country in cricket and is a former chairman of Canterbury Cricket.[3][4] She states that she grew up with cricket and "had a love for the game from when [she] could walk!"[3] Satterthwaite was for many years office manager for a veterinary practice,[5] and since 2015 has been employed by Canterbury Cricket.[6]

Satterthwaite made her debut for Canterbury Magicians at limited overs level in 2003.[7]

In 2007, Satterthwaite became captain of the Magicians, initially on a temporary basis due to regular captain Haidee Tiffen having a virus.[8]

In 2016, Satterthwaite was appointed captain of the Lancashire Thunder in the Women's Cricket Super League. She played in five matches for the Thunder in July and August 2016.[9][10]

During the 2014–15 season, Satterthwaite played nine matches for the Tasmanian Roar; four times in the Australian Women's Twenty20 Cup and five in the Women's National Cricket League.[10][7]

Satterthwaite signed for the Hobart Hurricanes ahead of the 2015–16 Women's Big Bash League season. In 2016, she resigned for the Hurricanes for the 2016–17 Women's Big Bash League season.[11][12]

International career[edit]

Satterthwaite made her international debut for New Zealand against Australia on 19 July 2007 in a Twenty20 International. She made her One Day International debut two days later, also against Australia.[2]

In August 2007, she took six wickets for seventeen runs against England; this remains the only six-wicket haul in a women's T20I match.[13]

During Pakistan's tour to New Zealand in November 2016, Satterthwaite became the first woman to score a century in three consecutive innings in ODIs.[14]

Satterthwaite has captained New Zealand twice in One Day International cricket, the first against Ireland in 2010 and the second against Pakistan in 2016.[15][16][17]
