For New Zealand Woman’s star Sophie Devine, it’s all about staying true to the mantra: keep learning, continue to develop as a player, and deliver for my team and fans. Having made her first class debut at the tender age of 14 for the Wellington Blaze, Sophie has already achieved more than most would in a lifetime.
Sophie made her international debut for New Zealand against Australia in Brisbane in Oct, 2006 and in 76 ODI’s has amassed 1420 runs at 24.91. With a desire to continually grow as a player, learning from her past experiences and to stay connected to her fan base, Sophie needed a centralised place where she could easily analyse her performance, sharing game day statistics and her own personal thoughts on cricketing moments.
Woman’s cricket has been in growth mode over the past view years. However, Sophie explains, that despite this growth, the players still struggle with having limited insights into their on-field performance. 'You need easy access to all of your player statistics, anytime, anywhere - importantly you want to see how you are tracking in certain competitions - are your performances better in T20, or ODI, where are your weaknesses and what can you improve?'
On top of that, Sophie also found that she wanted to share performances with her family and supporters. Sophie has profiles on twitter, facebook and CricInfo but found that none of these social media platforms provided the right balance of high performance insight and social sharing like CricHQ.
My philosophy has always been to keep getting better, but to keep it simple. CricHQ aligned perfectly with this philosophy, from playing metrics, to wagon wheels and social sharing, CricHQ has helped Sophie to gain greater levels of transparency into her own performances creating unique opportunities to keep her ahead of her competition.
Sophie also follow her favourite players from around the world, or keep up to date with her own club teams performance when she is away on tour with the White Ferns. All of their cricket activity is on to her CricHQ news feed. The immediacy of capturing these moments as they happen and sharing across devices keeps Sophie closer to home.
