Heather Knight

An accomplished player in World Cricket, England and Hobart Hurricanes skipper Heather Knight will again step out for the WBBL side this season.  She made her T20 debut for England in Sri Lanka in 2010 and has 36 international T20 caps to her name alongside playing in the ODI and Test formats too. She plays her county cricket for Berkshire back home and Tasmanian cricket fans would remember her from 2014 stint with the Cripps Roar during which she won the Player of the Tournament award for the WT20 after several superb performances.

Personal highlights -  Making the T20 World Cup final in Bangladesh 2014, however losing to Australia was not a highlight!

Something fans wouldn't know about you - I climbed Kilimanjaro and played cricket at the top!
