SUZIE BATES TO CAPTAIN TEAM FALCONS AT
SDG FAIRBREAK T20 IN DUBAI
Sydney, Australia (27th April, 2022) – New Zealand captain, Suzie Bates, is proud to be leading a combination of notable and rising stars from diverse cultural backgrounds at the SDG FairBreak Invitational T20 in Dubai.
Britney Cooper, Marizanne Kapp and Mariko Hill are powerful drawcards on the international scene, while hidden diamonds like Christina Gough from Germany, and Anju Gurung from Bhutan will get an opportunity to sparkle on a global stage.
England’s trailblazer, Dani Wyatt, brings serious talent to the Falcons’ ranks and has so much skill and dedication to share with the cricketers she will play alongside and against.
Just like the highly prized birds of prey revered in Arabian and Asian culture, the Falcons’ instincts and abilities will be unleashed and on display at Dubai International Stadium from 1st to 15th May 2022.
We wish this superb squad all the very best as they prepare for the tournament.
