Bio

Devine started playing organised cricket when she was five and was first selected to play for Wellington Blaze when she was just 14.

When she was selected in the White Ferns's squad in 2006, the then 17-year-old was one of the youngest ever members of the side. 

The allrounder gave New Zealand an incredible start to their 2013 Women's World Cup campaign, smashing 145 off 131 balls and securing a 150-run win over South Africa.

Devine has also represented New Zealand in hockey as a member of the Black Sticks hockey team, and has proven to be a valuable member of the SA Scorpions' line-up. 

In a match against India in 2015, she broke the international record (men and women) for the fastest T20I half century, taking just 18 balls to achieve the feat.

Her habit of breaking records continued well into the 2017 Women's World Cup, where she hit 9 sixes in a game against Pakistan to become the first woman to do so in WODI cricket.

The Kiwi has also been an absolute superstar for the Adelaide Strikers in the WBBL. She became the club's first ever cricketer, male or female, to reach 1,000 Big Bash runs, also topping the charts for maximum sixes in the tournament's history.
