Playing Role

Middle order Batter

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.
