    New White Ferns skipper to be named today for upcoming tour by South Africa and the World T20

    With White Ferns captain Amy Satterthwaite taking a break to have her first child, a new skipper will be named today for the upcoming tour by South Africa and the World T20


    Former captain Suzie Bates is the obvious option, having stepped down from the role due to the workload, but it's understood it won't be her.

    Anna Peterson's had success leading Auckland into the T20 finals, but isn't a regular in the team.

    Wicketkeeper Katey Martin's also an option, in a similar vein to Peterson after her efforts with Otago.

    That leaves the most likely candidate, allrounder and Wellington skipper, Sophie Devine.
