Brunt is the spearhead of the England bowling attack. The passion that she has for the game is self-evident and when she crosses the boundary edge you know that you are in for a contest. She has also been recognized for her hard-hitting batting recently and is regarded as an all-rounder. Plagued by back injuries over the course of her career, there is no doubting her willingness to get on the pitch and compete.
From Barnsley, South Yorkshire she looked up to Daren Gough who also hails from the same town. Brunt was the ‘player of the match’ in the 2009 World T20 final at Lord’s. She is also one of the four players to have played for England in both the 2009 and 2017 winning World Cup campaigns. She is also an important player in the T20 leagues, Kia Super Leauge (Yorkshire Diamonds) and WBBL (Perth Scorchers) and is one of England’s leading wicket-takers alongside Jenny Gunn.
