There is no doubting the batting ability that Wyatt has, she has been finding a regular place in the batting line-up which has been the problem. Although the recent Ashes series might have solved that problem as she hit a hundred in the final T20I helping England to an impressive victory to level the overall series. She was also a part of the England side that won the World Cup in 2017, as well as being named in the ICC Women’s T20I Team of the Year.
Having made her county debut for Staffordshire at just 14, it would be just five years before she made her international debut against India. Her off-spin is a handy option for her, although she has bowled very little in recent years. Moves to Nottinghamshire and Sussex in recent has kept her in the top division of county cricket. One of a small number of England players to play in the WBBL for Melbourne Renegades, she has also represented Lancashire Thunder and Southern Vipers in the Kia Super League.
Danielle Wyatt as she is fondly called, started at the very young age playing cricket and made a smooth transition to senior England side. She made her debut in the year 2010 against India, and made the opening slot her own. The diminutive right-hander is one of the most fearless cricketers going around. She scores her runs at a brisk clip and enables the middle order to bat more freely. Wyatt’s T20 form and has coincided with her ODI performance as well. She has batted in the middle order too, but her performance as an opener has given England’s batting line-up more flexibility.
Wyatt has scored two centuries in the shorter format and has a good strike rate of over 120. She is considered one of the most explosive players on the women’s circuit, hitting the ball in rather different areas. Although small in stature, Danielle Wyatt packs a punch at the top of the order, walking down the pitch to attack bowlers from the get-go, carving anything full over cover or mid-off, or shovelling anything slightly shorter over mid-wicket.
While her off-spin was the dominant skill in the early part of her career, it has taken a bit of a back seat in the recent years. She is now used as more of a part-time bowler to break a partnership or fill-in for a struggling bowler.
Dynamite in the field, Danielle Wyatt covers ground very quickly and has a rocket arm. She is often patrolling the mid-wicket boundary in the latter half of the innings, ready to pounce on any opportunity that may arise.
