It was one that she has done with distinction leading England to a World Cup victory at Lord’s in 2017, and Western Storm to that years Kia Super League. Was awarded an OBE in the New Years Honours list 2018 for services to cricket.
A top-order batter who can be important with big-hitting players around her and a calm head who has helped her team by batting for long periods in test matches as well as being able to play important innings in the 50 and 20 over formats. Her off-spin was used to good effect during the 2017 World Cup as she had a knack of breaking partnerships to bring her side back into a number of games.
