7. Kate Cross
One of the important members of the England team is Kate Cross. The 29-year-old cricketer worked hard to make it to the Nationals team. She is the first ever female cricketer to have been accepted in the Lancashire Academy. Though she had few remarkable performances in domestic games, she couldn’t endure for long and wanted to take a break and quit cricket.
Luckily, she was picked again in the England Women’s squad in 2011. However, she waited for 2 years to play in the middle order. Despite the competition, she made sure to find a spot in the England team. It is to be noted that she is one among the few cricketers who got a professional contract for full-time from the England board of cricket.
