Allrounder Georgia Elwiss grew up in Wolverhampton, and initially played for Staffordshire before moving to Sussex at the start of the 2011 season. An MCC Young Cricketer in 2010 and 2011, she was called up as bowling cover for the injured Jenny Gunn during the 2011 Women's Quadrangular Series, but did not play in the series. However, she was included in the squad for the South Africa tour that autumn, and made her international debut in October 2011.
She was selected again for the series against India in 2012, and the faith of the selectors was rewarded when she took six wickets across the series at an economy rate of 1.93 - including 3 for 17 in the final ODI - and was named Player of the Series. It earned her a World Cup call-up in early 2013, though she featured in just one of the matches in a disappointing tournament for defending champions England which saw them finish in third place.
Ruled out of the 2013 Ashes series due to a back injury, she also missed out against India in 2014 due to a broken hand, but by the summer of 2015 had forced her way back into contention. She made her Test debut against Australia at Canterbury, once again in place of the injured Gunn, and in a poor show with the bat by England her 46 in the second innings stood out for its fluency and freedom. Her maiden international fifty swiftly followed, coming on tour in South Africa in February 2016 to help England to a series-clinching five-wicket victory.
Having featured in the 2016 World Twenty20, she was named as the captain of Loughborough Lighting in the inaugural Kia Super League, and also took over as Sussex captain for the 2016 season in the absence of Sarah Taylor.
