White Ferns captain Amy Satterthwaite has voiced her support for coach Haidee Tiffen reapplying for her job when her contract with New Zealand Cricket is up later this year.
Tiffen will miss the upcoming Rose Bowl series against Australia, taking a leave of absence after a confronting review into the side's recent performances.

"I want her to re-apply for the job and we know that there will hopefully be a lot of candidates that apply for the job." Satterthwaite said.
"I'm sure we will end up with the best candidate for the position."
The New Zealand Cricket review was presented to the players in Hamilton last week after their T20 series against India.
"I think it was a challenging review for everybody involved," said Satterthwaite. "It was honest and I think that’s a good thing.
"We need to sit down and reflect, and move forward. We knew there would be some honest things in there.
"We acknowledge it's been a tough week for Haidee, and we want to give her that space and take the time to recover."
Satterthwaite said the players would need to take more responsibility on this tour.
"We acknowledge our performances haven't been where we'd like them to be over the last 12-18 months and we need to do our part in improving it."
New Zealand Cricket high-performance coach Bob Carter will be the interim coach for the tour.
Satterthwaite, 32, said she intended catching up with Tiffen at the end of the Rose Bowl series.
"She [Tiffen] has been a massive part of this team and we will miss her not being here at this series, but we know we have a job at hand."
New Zealand hasn't claimed a Rose Bowl series in 20 years.
