Ben Sawyer has been appointed as the new head-coach of New Zealand Women's Team aka the White Ferns. He has quite an experience in training cricket teams and Sophie Devine, the skipper of the White Ferns, is also delighted to work with Sawyer.

Ben Sawyer, the former Australian Women’s fast-bowling coach, has recently been chosen as the New Zealand Women’s head-coach. He has a contract agreement with the New Zealand cricket board for two years. Sawyer has quite the experience when it comes to train as well as carry out the responsibilities of a team. As the fast-paced coach of Australia, he worked under the supervision of Matthew Mott, who is the head-coach of the women’s squad. Not to mention, he is also the head-coach of the Birmingham Phoenix in The Hundred, at present. Formerly, he also took up the supervision of the Sydney Sixers team of the WBBL tournament.  

Ben Sawyer has already connected to the New Zealand Women’s Team; also known as White Ferns. When asked about his new venture with the White Ferns, he said, “I see a lot of potential in this White Ferns group and I feel really optimistic about helping to untap that potential. So, they can take their cricket to the next level. It’s certainly going to be a learning process as I get to know the players and they get to know me. Also, my cricket philosophies and coaching style.”

The White Ferns’ skipper, Sophie Devine also mentioned that she and the team are looking forward to work with Sawyer. “We’re really looking forward to working with Ben and receiving the benefit of his experience. He’s been a key figure in the ongoing success of the Australian women’s team. We hope we can tap into that bank of experience and grow together as a team.” 

Sophie also feels that the upcoming cricket tours will help in bringing the squad and Sawyer together. It will help them get to know each other better. “The upcoming Commonwealth Games campaign in Birmingham and the tour to West Indies will be really helpful in that regard. There’s nothing like away tours for bringing a group together and sharing a common purpose.”
