Wicketkeeper Katey Martin made a comeback as New Zealand womens team announced a 14-member squad for its upcoming three-match ODI series against Australia, beginning February 22.

The 34-year-old, who missed the home series against India due to work commitments, was the highest scorer for her side when New Zealand toured Australia for T20 series, last year.

Speaking about Martins comeback, White ferns head coach Haidee Tiffen said the right-hand batter will bring plenty of experience to the middle order which will prove useful for the side.

Katey brings plenty of experience to the middle order and is a proven performer at the international level. She also provides plenty of energy behind the stumps, which not only helps the bowlers but gets the team up, ICC quoted Tiffen, as saying.

Rosemary Mair, who made her T20I debut against India, is also likely to be handed over her maiden ODI cap during the Australia series. We want to give Rosemary an opportunity. She bowls that hard, heavy length and challenges the batters, so we are looking at what she can offer in the one-day format, Tiffen said.

New Zealand has not been that successful on the Australian soil but the coach is confident of her team performing well.

We talk a lot about partnerships and I predict it is going to be a high-scoring series. For us, its about working through the ups and downs of ODI cricket the hunger and desire is there to step up against Aussie in their own backyard, she said.

New Zealand and Australia will play their first ODI on February 22 at the WACA Ground followed by the second and third match on February 24 and March 3, respectively.

Following is the full New Zealand squad for the Australia ODI series:

Amy Satterthwaite (c), Suzie Bates, Sophie Devine, Lauren Down, Maddy Green, Hayley Jensen, Leigh Kasperek, Amelia Kerr, Rosemary Mair, Katey Martin, Katie Perkins, Anna Peterson, Hannah Rowe, Lea Tahuhu. (ANI)
