Katie Perkins first broke into the White Ferns in 2012 and is now a middle order nugget, with a career-best 70 against England in February 2015.
A policewoman by trade, Perkins had a magnificent 2011/12 summer for the Auckland Hearts and was a key part of their success in winning the National One-Day competition. She has helped them add a number of trophies since, including the 2013/14 Twenty20 title.
Her terrific form that season led to a call-up for international duties and she traveled with the WHITE FERNS to Australia for the Twenty20 series and Rose Bowl competition. She was immediately successful, scoring 31 on debut and going on to have a fantastic summer against the two top sides at the time, Australia and England.
