Celebrating Kate Anderson’s Milestone: Her Maiden International Call-Up with the White Ferns

Kate Anderson’s incredible cricketing journey has reached a significant milestone, as she basks in the glory of receiving her first international call-up.¬†Anderson’s maiden international call-up is a testament to her remarkable performance during the 2022/23 domestic summer season. Her exemplary batting skills shone brightly as she amassed a staggering total of 536 runs, boasting an impressive average of 59 in the fiercely competitive Dream 11 Super Smash competition. Her outstanding achievements did not go unnoticed, as she was rightfully bestowed with the prestigious title of NZC’s Women’s Domestic Player of the Year.
