Ecclestone made the breakthrough into the England side in 2016 when she made her debut at the age of 17. It was to be the following year that she staked a claim for a regular spot in the side when she was selected for the Women’s Ashes making her test debut at the North Sydney Oval.
Like Alex Hartley, she is a left-arm spinner who has played for Lancashire. Ecclestone was the leading wicket-taker in the Women’s County Championship in 2017 as Lancashire won the title with an average at just under 7 per wicket. She possesses a lot of control for a bowler so young and has been a regular for Lancashire Thunder during the first two seasons of the Kia Super League. With Hartley, a regular in the England side it will be interesting to see who will become England’s main left-arm spinner over the course of the next couple of years, don’t discount Ecclestone making the position her own.
