White Ferns captain Bates joins Kent

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 10/05/2016

White Ferns skipper Suzie Bates has joined powerhouse English women's county side Kent.

Rated second in the world batting rankings, Bates' signature is a coup for six-time first division champions Kent, who already boast five England internationals in their squad.

The 28-year-old averages more than 40 in one-day internationals and has scored seven centuries and 16 half-centuries for New Zealand.

Her Kent debut is set down for their first home one-day match against Middlesex on Sunday.
