Profile

Heather Knight was left with big shoes to fill when she was named England captain in June 2016 following the retirement of Charlotte Edwards. It was, though, a natural progression for Knight who had been Edwards' vice-captain since 2014 and had built captaincy experience with Berkshire in county cricket and Hobart Hurricanes in the WBBL.
