Summary

  • The cricket season might be over for White Fern Amelia Kerr, but her glittering career has only just begun according to coach Christie van Dyk.
  • Van Dyk has only coached Kerr since last August, when he was appointed head coach of the Wellington Blaze, but remembered what he thought of the young leg spinner seeing her play for Tawa College about four years before.
  • Kerr remained modest in light of her achievements and felt she had grown from the experiences such as the White Ferns disappointing fifth at the 2017 Women’s World Cup in England.
  • The White Ferns face a full schedule come June when they will play Ireland, England, South Africa and Australia in a build-up to November’s Women’s T20 World Cup in the West Indies.
  • Kerr said the White Ferns’ failure in England was not a focus for her and she believed the team had a great chance of succeeding in November.
