Anna Peterson retires from international cricket


New Zealand allrounder Anna Peterson has announced her retirement from international cricket, New Zealand Cricket confirmed on Tuesday (October 5). Peterson, who turned 31 last month, represented her country 64 times in international cricket.

“I’ve loved every minute of playing for the White Ferns and representing New Zealand,” said Peterson. “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.”

Despite quitting the international circuit at the age of 31, Peterson will continue playing domestic cricket where she will be representing Auckland Hearts. She will also be working at North Harbour Rugby as the Rugby Manager for Women and Girls.
