All-rounder Anna Peterson has retired from international cricket, bringing an end to her nine-year White Ferns career.
Peterson announced her international retirement on Tuesday but plans to continue playing domestically.
Last representing New Zealand in March 2020, Peterson played 32 ODIs and 33 T20Is, featuring in one ICC Cricket World Cup and three T20 World Cups.
A powerful striker of the ball and canny off-spinner, the right-hander first played for New Zealand in 2012.
“I've loved every minute of playing for the WHITE FERNS and representing New Zealand,” Peterson said.
“A massive thanks has to go to my family, friends, coaches, teammates and all those who helped me throughout my international career.
“The White Ferns have a special team culture and I’ve been privileged to make some lifelong connections in the team while I’ve also enjoyed meeting and competing against players from across the globe.”
She will continue to play for the Auckland Hearts domestically, something New Zealand coach Bob Carter is confident they will benefit from deeply.
“On her day, Anna can hit the ball as far as anyone,” said Carter.
“She is a great team player and the younger Hearts players are lucky to have someone of her calibre around their environment helping the next generation grow as cricketers and people.”
