Veteran New Zealand all-rounder Suzie Bates is upset and disappointed at not getting a chance to play Tests in women’s cricket. She said that she has played more than 250 women’s T20 and ODI matches but has not played a single test match till now.

The 35-year-old, who has played 145 ODIs and 131 T20Is, has taken 125 wickets with her medium pace bowling besides scoring more than 8,500 runs but she regrets that the International Cricket Council (ICC) is not paying much attention to women’s Test cricket. Used to be.

Bates told Senge Mornings on Wednesday: “As cricketers, we want to test ourselves at a higher level and I think Test cricket can be the ultimate level. Although it’s not a women’s game and I believe that That we are missing the opportunity.”

New Zealand played its last Test in 2004. It was two years before Bates made his international debut. India, Australia and England are playing four-day Tests but it is not regular. However, the ICC has given permission for the trial of the women’s Ashes series in the five-day format.
