New Zealand women will kick off their ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 campaign against Bangladesh women when they meet on Monday (March 7).
Suzie Bates will finally get to see if there really is no place like home as she plays her first game for New Zealand on her home ground of Dunedin.
The University Oval is hosting its second match of the ICC Women`s Cricket World Cup 2022 as the White Ferns face Bangladesh with both sides searching for their first win. Bates will play her 163rd international match for New Zealand and despite all that experience, she will appear at the venue for the first time tomorrow.
“It will be really special and I guess the fact that I have never played here for the White Ferns makes it that much more special. In a home World Cup I will be able to have some of my family and friends up on the bank,” said Bates, as reported by ICC.
“We`ll just have that real comfort of knowing what this ground is about and looking up and seeing the people that have been there since we were under 15. It`s going to be a pretty cool moment to sing the national anthem and be at your home ground, especially for the first time, I`m sure tomorrow will be a pretty cool day,” she added.Bates will feature alongside fellow Dunedin native Martin whose innings of 44 almost saw New Zealand home as they fell three runs short against the West Indies.
