Profile

A structural engineer outside the playing field, Morna Nielsen made her international debut barely four months after taking up the art of spin bowling, against Australia in February 2010. Having started off with Northern Districts in 2007 as a medium-pacer, she switched to spin at the start of the 2009-10 season, and quickly left an impression on the selectors.
