Born in Palmerston North, Rowe grew up in a dairy farm in Manawatu and started playing cricket since she was eight years old. Watching her brother play in the backyard, Rowe picked up the game from there. She recalls the backyard cricket as being ‘very competitive’. Rowe is still studying and is a student at Massey University – Palmy.
A lanky right-arm medium pace bowler, Rowe made her debut as a teen for the White Ferns in a One-Day International (ODI) against England in 2015. Rowe uses her height as an advantage to hit the back of length spot and was coached by the late Mike Shrimpton at the Central Hinds province.
Making her ODI debut in 2015, she has a good set of technical skills. Also, she has been impressive in the shorter form of the game since making her debut against India in 2015. But one thing that doesn’t go her way is her place in playing XI. Rowe has some stiff competition from Tahuhu and Huddleston and hence has played only a few games till date. But the young lad is the regular member of the squad getting handful experience for future tours.
