Wellington, March 2 NZPA - New Zealand have amended their squad as the Rose Bowl limited overs women's cricket series continues against Australia in Queenstown tomorrow.

The White Ferns have a 2-0 series lead after winning both Twenty20 matches, and now head into three one-day games looking to wrap up the series.

Three players have been added to the squad, including uncapped allrounder Kate Broadmore, who toured Australia with the team last month, and spinner Emma Campbell, who has returned from injury.

The batting has also been bolstered with the recall of top order batsman Victoria Lind in a squad of 14

These three have taken the places of Maria Fahey, Saskia Bullen and Erin Birmingham, who drop out of the squad

White Ferns coach Gary Stead is optimistic his team can carry on their good form which follows a 0-5 one-day series loss across the Tasman last month.

"We are very pleased with the way we performed in the Twenty20s and hopefully we can take that momentum and confidence into the one-day game as well.

"The confidence in the team is high at the moment and we want to keep the Aussies down while we can."

The other one-day games are both in Invercargill, on Saturday and Sunday.

New Zealand squad: Aimee Watkins (captain, Central Districts), Suzie Bates (Otago), Nicola Browne (Northern Districts), Amy Satterthwaite (Canterbury), Sara McGlashan (Cental Districts), Rachel Priest (Cental Districts), Katey Martin (Otago), Sophie Devine (Wellington), Sian Ruck (Wellington), Kate Pulford (Northern Districts), Abby Burrows (Central Districts),
