WBBL 2022-23: Adelaide Strikers signs Amy Satterthwaite as Assistant Coach

Former New Zealand Captain Amy Satterthwaite has joined the Adelaide Strikers support staff as their New Assistant Coach for WBBL 2022-23. Notably, this will be Sattherwaite’s first stint as a Coach of a Professional Cricket team. However, Sattherwaite has served as a mentor to the Canterbury team back home.

Earlier in May, Amy Sattherwaite announced her retirement from International Cricket calling time on a 15-year illustrious career. Satterthwaite is New Zealand’s most capped women’s ODI player with 145 matches and has scored 4639 runs, scalping 50 ODI wickets. In the T20I format too, Satterthwaite has hit the mark by amassing 1784 runs in 111 matches & has picked 26 wickets. She won the ICC Women’s ODI player of the year award in 2017 after scoring four consecutive centuries during the 2016-17 season.

In WBBL too Satterthwaite has made her presence felt by scoring 1,500 runs & scalping 44 wickets. Her standout performance in WBBL came back in the second edition of the Women’s Big Bash League when she claimed a hat-trick for Hobart Hurricanes. She was also awarded as the Player of the Tournament in 2017-18. Amy Satterthwaite has last featured in the Hundred 2022 playing for Manchester Originals.

“The WBBL is such a quality competition, and one that I have been fortunate to play in over the years,” Satterthwaite said in a press release that the Strikers put out on Friday.

“I absolutely loved my time on the field playing with and against some of the best in the world, and I know the standard of the local talent is extremely high.

“I have always had great respect for the Adelaide Strikers; they have always been a competitive franchise and the squad looks strong again this season after a brilliant performance last year.”

“Hopefully I can bring a fresh perspective to the coaching group and lean on my experience to help the team go that next step this summer.”

The WBBL 2022-23 will begin on October 13 while Adelaide Strikers will begin their campaign two days later against Sydney Sixers in Mackay.
