Bio

Making her debut for the Cantebury Magicians at the age of just 18, Tahuhu spent the next two years impressing everyone in New Zealand's domestic circuit, before earning a call-up to the national side two years later.

After her making her debuts in WODI and WT20I cricket in mid-2011, the tall right-armer rose among the ranks in international cricket, registering impressive performances such as her 4-27 in a WODI against Sri Lanka in 2013.

Tahuhu was named in the ICC Women's T20I Team of the Year in 2017, continuing her form to earn a spot in the White Ferns' squad for the 2018 ICC Women's World Twenty20.

The Melbourne Renegades welcomed her into the WBBL ahead of the second edition, with the fearsome bowler contributing consistently ever since.
