All-rounder Suzie Bates has stepped down as New Zealand captain after nearly seven years in charge.

Bates, 30, the leading run-scorer in the history of women's Twenty20 international cricket, will be replaced by batter Amy Satterthwaite, 31.

The change takes place less than two months before the start of the ICC Women's World T20 in the West Indies.

"Captaining New Zealand was a great honour and a rewarding experience. I gave it my all," said Bates.

"The last 12 months, I've probably struggled with captaincy and playing, and it has affected my performances, particularly at the end of seasons where I've been more fatigued."
