New Zealand hope to unleash Lea Tahuhu on Australia during Rose Bowl


The home side have not won a one-day series against Australia since 1999

Amy Satterthwaite, New Zealand’s stand-in captain, hopes they are able to “unleash” fast bowler Lea Tahuhu on Australia in the Rose Bowl one-day series.

Tahuhu, who remains one of the quickest bowlers in the game, has been out of action since injuring her hamstring in the first ODI against England in February and was not included for the T20Is against Australia in the hope that she would be ready for the 50-over matches which begin on Sunday.

It continued a run of injury problems for her after she picked up a side strain during the one-day series in Brisbane last October which meant she missed a chunk of the WBBL with Melbourne Renegades.
