Anya Shrubsole, the 16-year old Somerset medium-fast bowler who made her international debut this summer against South Africa, has been given the Most Promising Young Women's Cricketer Award by The Cricket Society.

"I feel honoured to have won this award," Shrubsole said. "It is an exciting time for me and the England team with the forthcoming Women's World Cup in March in Australia. I hope that I can keep performing as I have and help bring the World Cup back to England."

The Most Promising Young Women's Cricketer Award was first presented in 2003 to Katherine Docherty. Since then the winners have been Katherine Brunt, Sarah Taylor, Sophie Le Marchand and Katie Cross.
