Erin Bermingham caught the game of cricket while playing with her two brothers in their backyard same like her team mate Suzie. She grew up playing in boys team and for a long time did not realize that women’s cricket existed.
A right-hand bat and leg-spinner, Bermingham represents Canterbury Magicians in the State League. She made her debut in the shortest format of the game first, while the One-Day debut came a few months later in 2010.
Bermingham has been a constant member of the White Ferns side and it is her leg-breaks that earn her place in the XI. She made an impact in only her third ODI, where she took 4 for 35 and won the player of the match. Her wicket taking abilities with an added advantage to bowl economically make a perfect spinner for the white ferns. Along with cricket Erin is also a Front line Police Officer in Christchurch. She is inspired by Roger Federer and reckons he’s a remarkable athlete.
