Bio:

Sarah Glenn was one of the 26,000 fans who watched England’s victory against India in the 2017 World Cup final, a moment that ignited her love for the sport in which she would eventually choose to play professionally. Initially a seamer progressing through the Derbyshire age-group system, Glenn switched to leg spin after being inspired by footage of Shane Warne.

Glenn made her international debut in February 2019 against Sri Lanka in a T20I match, immediately showcasing her bowling prowess with figures of 2/18. This debut marked the beginning of a promising career, with Glenn quickly establishing herself as a reliable spin option for England. After her debut in 2018, Glenn played in the 2019 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup, finishing in the top 10 of the ICC T20I bowling rankings by the end of that year. She was selected for England’s squad for the 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup, where the Lionesses reached the semifinal, with the leg-spinner taking 6 wickets at an economy rate of just over 4 runs per over.

In 2020, England contested a five-match T20I series against West Indies, and Glenn was declared the player of the series for her outstanding performance with both bat and ball. She claimed 7 wickets in the series and also contributed a quickfire 26 off just 19 deliveries in the second T20I match as England whitewashed the Windies side.

In September 2022, Glenn achieved her career-best ranking, securing the second position in the ICC Women’s T20I Bowling Rankings. This recognition followed a remarkable four-wicket haul against India. She made her ODI debut against Pakistan in 2019, where Glenn ended up taking eight wickets in her first three ODIs.

Sarah continues to be an essential aspect of England’s limited-overs side, having played over 75 matches and claiming more than 90 wickets across T20Is and ODIs.
