Heather Knight

Guest Coach, Cricket for Girls

Heather Knight took over the reigns as captain of England in the summer of 2016. She has proved how much of a natural leader she is, having led the team to three series wins in a row since taking over. Heather has also become a reliable and trusty middle order batter for the team. She has dug the team out of tough situations but also has the ability to send the ball into the stands!

Having Heather help on the academy will give an opportunity for the players to find out what it is that makes a good leader and how to handle the challenges that come with it. Heather is also a very handy off spinner and will be able to provide insight into various aspects of this skill.
