Profile

A hard-hitting top-order bat, Charlotte Edwards became the youngest woman to have played for England, when she made her debut against New Zealand at Guildford as the age of 16. (Holly Colvin later became the youngest, aged 15, in the first Ashes Test in 2005). Edwards was anything but out of her depth, and in 1997 smashed 12 centuries, including one off 118 balls against the touring South Africans. The day before her 18th birthday, she scored a then-record ODI score of 173 not out in a World Cup match against Ireland. In 1998-99 she scored her maiden Test hundred against India but, while still scoring runs, she did not score as many runs as had been expected. In 2000, she was sidelined by a serious cruciate ligament injury sustained while playing hockey which caused her to miss almost all of the 2001 season. When she returned, she showed no hint that her talent had been diminished by the lay-off and continued in the same punishing vein. In 2005 she stepped up from her role as England vice-captain to take full charge of the side when Clare Connor was injured, and was appointed full-time when Connor retired in March 2006. Edwards captained England to a third-place finish in the Quadrangular Series in Chennai in 2007 and a home series loss to New Zealand. But then came the turnaround as England retained the Ashes in Australia, beat New Zealand 31- away and India 4-0 at home. At the start of the World Cup 2009 in Australia, England were favourites for the trophy and Edwards led an inspired team to the title, dropping only one game in the process. She was awarded an MBE in June that year for her services to cricket.
