Teen spinner set to take international women's cricket by storm




While the Black Caps might be struggling on their tour of India, the White Ferns side looks to have found the next big thing.

Amelia Kerr, 16, has just been selected for the first time to represent her country, with the young leg-spinner looking to make a name for herself on the international stage against Pakistan.

If the prospect of representing her country gets too overwhelming, Kerr doesn't need to look too far.

Her grandfather is none other than former Black Cap Bruce "Bags" Murray, and he couldn't be more thrilled with his granddaughter's rapid rise into international cricket.

"When I saw her bowling so accurately and then bowling that googly, I thought boy this is extraordinary!" said Murray.

Something echoed by batters all across the country, who have faced Kerr since she made her professional debut at 14.

The White Ferns series with Pakistan starts on November 9 in Lincoln.
