Lauren Down is a New Zealand’s opening batswoman. Down has been a strong performer at club level but has had an injury-disrupted start to her domestic career in early stages. Down captain’s her club side who were premier champions in 2013/14. She has also captained Auckland at the U-21 level where the team has enjoyed a good run of success under her leadership.
Impressive performances at domestic level helped her to get a maiden call-up against New Zealand in 2018. Right-handed made her Women’s One Day International cricket (WODI) debut for New Zealand Women against the West Indies Women on 4 March 2018. The 22 yr old is new to international cricket, so she needs to grab every opportunity that will make her hold a spot in the side.
