It's the best bowling and fielding display he's seen from The White Ferns.
This from White Fern coach Gary Stead today from The Bradman Oval after his side annihilated The South African batting and completely routed them for 51.
Earlier in the day, The White Ferns lost two early wickets after they were asked to bat first, and it was left to 22 year Canterbury left hander Amy Satterthwaite to shore up the top order, this she did, hitting 73 from 75 balls which included 11 boundaries, her highest score at this level for New Zealand.
Coach Stead said it was wonderful to see the freedom Satterthwaite displayed today, particularly her straight driving in front of the wicket , he said Amy made it looked so easy iand it was a pity she didn't get the magic three figures.
Gary Stead said the White Ferns were still vulnerable at 111/5 and the partnership of the day between Sara McGlashan and Nicola Browne was brilliant.
The pair put on an unbeaten 139, with Sara McGlashan.in sublime form, 88 from 76 and Nicola Browne 51 from 74 balls.
Again Gary Stead searched for words to compliment Sara McGlashan on the way she went about her innings, pacing herself and batting through to the end, it was just superb he said.
The daunting total seemed to mesmerise the South African's, losing two quick wickets and when their score was 41/2 only ten more runs were scored as right arm medium pacer Suzie Bates and right arm off spinner Aimee Mason tore through the batting order to dismiss South Africa for 51.
Gary Stead admitted he's been demanding a performance like this from The White Ferns and today they delivered.
Of interest was a TEAM HAT-TRICK taken from the last ball of Aimee Mason's second over, the 17th when the score was 45 and the first two wickets of Suzie Bate's 3rd over ,the 18th of the match., these two bowlers picked up the last eight wickets between them.
The White Ferns now prepare for England to be played at The Bankstown Oval on saturday.
It's not that he wasn't content with the 199 run win today that Gary Stead sent his players out for fitness work at match end , more that he wanted to have their feet on the ground before they take on the highly fancied English side on saturday.
Tomorrow the team will train lightly in the afternoon after they bus back from Bowral to Sydney.
