Overview

Natalie Sciver has become an integral part of the England set-up. Brought into the England side as a bowler who bats, it is her batting that has become her dominant role with her ability to clear the boundary rope. She is also an inventive player who can play all around the ground and even had a shot named after her; the ‘Natmeg’ a premeditated shot played square of the wicket between the legs.

 

Having spent time in Japan (where she was born), Poland and the Netherlands, Sciver played as many different sports as possible before settling on cricket. With every year playing at the top level, there is an added maturity about her batting as she learns more about her own game. Her medium-pace bowling is taking a back seat but is more than useful. Domestically she plays for Surrey in the County Championship, Surrey Stars in the Kia Super Leauge and Perth Scorchers in the WBBL.
