Sophie Devine: ‘We need to normalise the conversation around mental health’


“I’ve been having to fight hard for the last couple of months to get in that space.”

Flaying England’s bowling over the fence repeatedly at Hove felt “like home” for Sophie Devine.
Devine, the New Zealand captain and opener, cleared the rope four times – twice onto the roof of the hospitality boxes – on her way to a half-century which secured a series-levelling victory for her side in her 100th T20 international.

“The way I describe it is it just feels comfortable and it feels like home in a sense,” Devine said. “It’s what all batters, it’s what all cricketers, it’s what all athletes, aim to achieve – that real Zen headspace where you’re not thinking of anything, there’s nothing in your mind, there’s clarity, and you really know what you’re out there to achieve.
