Charlotte Edwards inducted into ICC Hall of Fame

Kent cricketing legend Charlotte Edwards has been inducted into the ICC’s Hall of Fame, becoming the 108th cricketer to be included.

The former Kent Women skipper joins other Kent names such as Frank Woolley, Colin Cowdrey, Derek Underwood, Alan Knott, Steve Waugh, Muttiah Muralitharan & Rahul Dravid on the prestigious list.

Charlotte Edwards CBE is England Women’s most-capped player. Captain of her country from 2006-2016, she led the team to three Ashes wins, an ICC Women’s World Cup and an ICC Women’s T20 World Cup.

She played in the first-ever international T20 match, against New Zealand at Hove in 2004, and is England Women’s leading run-scorer in IT20 cricket.

She was named a Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 2014, the first Kent Women star to ever achieve the accolade, and was only the second woman in history to do so.

A multiple trophy-winner with Kent, Edwards also captained the Horses during what can be considered Kent Women’s first ‘golden age’ between 2006 and 2016.

The former England captain lifted the domestic double with Kent in her final season in 2016 to bring her tally of trophies to ten with the county, three of them national T20 competitions.

In July 2021, England’s new regional T20 competition was named the Charlotte Edwards Cup in her honour.

On being inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame, Edwards said: “It’s a massive honour to be included in the ICC Hall of Fame alongside the very illustrious company that has already been inducted.

“I’d like to thank and share this moment with my family and friends, my teammates and all of the coaches that have supported me throughout.”
