Heather Knight is one of the most promising women cricketer in England. She bats in top-order and was the highest scorer in back-to-back county seasons in 2008 and 2009. Soon, she made her debut for England in 2010.

On the back of some consistent performances, Knight was made the deputy of Charlotte Edwards in 2014. Two years later in 2016, Knight got the honor to captain England as Edwards decided to retire from International cricket.

Knight's most memorable performance for her country came in whites when she batted for close to seven hours to guide her team to a draw against Australia which looked highly unlikely at one time. This innings of 157 regained the Ashes for England and Knight's stature as a cricketer got multiplied by 10 times overnight.
