Profile

Touted as the best batting prospect since Charlotte Edwards, the left-hander Lydia Greenway made her full England debut in February 2003 against Australia in the Ashes Series at The Gabba, Brisbane. A late call-up to the squad, Greenway had just returned to England from a successful tour of Australia with England Under-19 where she had averaged 42, before turning around to join the seniors. Batting at No. 5, she immediately lived up to expectations, as she struck 88 in a warm-up match on her senior debut against Australia A. Although she scored just 37 in her next four innings, the selectors kept faith and in the first Test against South Africa in August 2003, Greenway was to repay that trust in spades as she and Claire Taylor smashed the world record for a fourth-wicket stand, amassing 203 of which Greenway struck 70 and Claire Taylor 177. Greenway followed this up with 66 in the next Test. Her one-day career has yet to bear fruit with only two half-centuries from over 60 ODIs but she has time to blossom and has every chance to do so under the watchful eye of Kent and England captain Edwards. Rated by many as the best fielder in women's cricket, she plays for Kent and Hayes Hurricanes WCC
