Overview

Elwiss has an impressive test average of 43.66. Both her test matches against Australia have seen her be in a position where she has had to fight hard for runs and that she has proven. Her innings of 46 in her first test at Canterbury was in complete contrast to her teammates. Elwiss is a player who has always been on the fringes of the England side, and if not for the form and longevity of Jenny Gunn would have played more games for England. An all-rounder who is economical with the ball, Elwiss was also part of the England squad that won the 2017 ICC Women’s World Cup.

 

Elwiss moved from Staffordshire to Sussex for the 2011 season and made her England debut later that year. She has captained her adoptive county during the 2016 season. She is also the captain of Loughborough Lightning who made the finals day of the first Kia Super Leauge and a late surge in the 2017 season saw them miss out on a second finals day. Elwiss also represented Melbourne Stars during WBBL03.
