The New Zealand women's cricket team are hoping to reverse recent fortunes at pinnacle events when the Twenty20 World Cup gets underway in Australia this weekend.

Across both the one-day and T20 formats - the White Ferns have reached the semifinals at just one of the last five World Cups.

Among the key names wanting to change that are star batters Sophie Devine and Suzie Bates.

Bates told Clay Wilson contributions from others will be crucial to New Zealand's success.
