TEAMS

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.

Knight, a top-order batsman who has latterly developed her offspin into a very handy second string, having initially bowled medium pace before a serious hamstring injury, had become a regular presence in England's top order since making her debut in 2010.

Her Test debut came a year later, against Australia in Sydney, and it is the longest format that includes her stand-out international performance to date. Facing Australia again, in 2013 at Wormsley, Knight scored 157 in a near seven-hour stay in the middle which helped England secure a draw and they would ultimately regain the Ashes.
