Bustling medium-pacer Isa Guha made her international debut in 2001 aged 16, in the Women's European Championship. She was intrinsic to England's success in their five-match one-day series against New Zealand in 2004, and took 5 for 22 in the fourth match, as England wrapped up the series. She took five wickets in the Test series and eight in the ODIs against India in 2006.
Guha's most memorable performance came in the Bowral Test in 2007-08 when she took a match-winning 9 for 100 to help England retain the Ashes. Her form in the World Cup was below par as she took only four wickets from five games. However she remained the No.1 bowler as per ICC rankings.
Guha had previously toured with England Under-19 to Australia in winter 2002-03, where she was named bowler of the series as England Under-19 won all six matches in the ACB Under-19 State tournament. And she was also player of the tournament in the under-19 European Championship last year, where she bagged seven wickets in 27 overs, conceding just 27 runs. Guha, who was named BBC Asian Network Sports Personality of the Year for 2002, is currently studying biochemistry at UCL. She plays county cricket for Berkshire, while Reading Ridgeway is her club team.
She was part of the England squad that won the World Cup and the World T20 in 2009. She announced retirement from international cricket on March 9, 2012, the same day that former Indian batsman Rahul Dravid walked out of international cricket.
Isa made her debut against India in 2002 in the quadrangular tournament between England, New Zealand and India and the Test series in India, taking five wickets.
Toured with England U19 to Australia last winter, where she was named bowler of the series as England U19 won six out of six matches in the ACB U19 State tournament.
Isa was named BBC Asian Network Sports Personality of the Year for 2002. Currently studying for a BSc Hons degree at London University.
