Ebony-Jewel Cora-Lee Camellia Rosamond Rainford-Brent is starting to attract significant attention for her cricket rather than her name. After making her England debut at the age of 17 in 2001, Rainford-Brent suffered the second serious back injury of her career and was out of cricket for two years. She had to take a year away from university and was even advised by the NHS to give up sport full stop, in case she suffered further injuries.
However, she refused to admit defeat, and got her reward following stints on Surrey's academy when in January 2007 she was re-selected for England's World Series campaign in India the following month. A hard-hitting and correct batsman, she bowls good pace and once she can bowl again she provides England's women with several options.
Cricket isn't even her first sport. She played national schools basketball and was an English schools athlete, representing shotput and hurdling. She also played football and squash for London but decided to stick with cricket. It's so far paying off and with a mature, analytic approach she has improved her psychological game beyond measure.
A self-starter, but great team asset, she took herself off to Adelaide in the winter of 2007-08 in order to progress her cricket and played with much batting success including a 98 not out for Port Adelaide alongside Australia captain Karen Rolton and fast bowler Emma Sampson.

Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
Did Virat Kohli get his tactics right on the final day in Ranchi? Going by his fast bowlers' lines and R Ashwin's late introduction, the Indian captain took a few puzzling calls
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
