LONDON SPIRIT LINE-UPS
ONES TO WATCH
London Spirit women will be lead by Heather Knight, the current England captain who famously led England to their Women’s Cricket World Cup winning triumph in 2017. A top order batter who top scored for Spirit women with 214 in last year’s competition, Knight can also bowl some handy spin. All rounder Amelia Kerr may be just 21-years-old but she has already played over 40 international T20 matches. An exciting talent the New Zealander is the youngest cricketer, male or female, to score a double hundred in One Day International’s (232 vs Ireland).
Australia’s Glenn Maxwell returns for London Spirit men. A purveyor of high-risk, high-reward cricket Maxwell can score runs in any area of the pitch. He’s also an outstanding fielder and useful spin bowler. Zak Crawley is another player with the potential to win a match on his own. The England batter excels in short-form cricket with his aggressive mindset and powerful hitting. Impressed in last year’s opening match of The Hundred scoring 64 from 40 balls for Spirit men.
