The 22-year-old right-arm pacer from England made her International debut on 27th June 2022 in a one-off Test match against South Africa at Taunton. Since making her International debut, she has played more white-ball matches for England, predominantly in the T20I format, having played 10 matches. She last played for England in a T20I against Sri Lanka on 2nd September 2023.

Her stocks are rising as far as franchise cricket is concerned. She has been a part of various franchise leagues and has represented multiple franchises around the world. She has represented Birmingham Phoenix in the Women’s Hundred. She has also represented Hobart Hurricanes and Sydney Thunder in the Women’s Big Bash League, and Mumbai Indians in the Women’s Premier League.

She lit the stage in the Inaugural edition of the Women’s Premier League in the year 2023. She etched her name into the history books when she became the first-ever bowler to pick a hat trick in the Eliminator en route to her match-winning spell (4-0-15-4) against the UP Warriorz. However, she has been out of the England side in recent times. She was a part of the Central Sparks side led by skipper Eve Jones in the Charlotte Edwards Cup 2024 at the start of the tournament.

However, she has decided to switch to the Western Storm for the remainder of the ongoing edition of the tournament, after not being a part of the playing 11 for Central Sparks in the first couple of fixtures. She has a perfect platform with the Western Storm to get more game time in the middle and regain her form with the ball as well as displaying her prowess with the bat.
