Auckland, Apr 27(ANI): New Zealand women's cricket captain Aimee Watkins has been rated among the world's 64 hottest female athletes alongside American skier Lindsay Vonn, Aussie swimmer Stephanie Rice and Czech tennis player Nicole Vaidisova.
Watkins admitted the ratings by Yahoo!Xtra came as surprise, as she does not consider herself as one of the world's sexiest sportswomen.
"I didn't know anything about it. I've seen it now," Stuff.co.nz quoted Watkins, as saying.
"Mum gave me a call and she was pretty excited and told me to go on and have a look. Since then I've had a bit of stick, but oh well. It's all a bit foreign to me," she added.
Meanwhile, talking about her team's preparations for the Twenty20 World Cup, which starts in the West Indies on May 5, Watkins said the White Ferns are confident of a good show after a clean sweep of Australia in this year's Twenty20 Rosebowl series.
"To beat Aussie 5-0, we're pretty happy with our Twenty20 form and our plans. We're pretty clear on what we need to do," Watkins said.
The New Zealand women's team fly out on Thursday. (ANI)
