Charlotte Edwards wins Cricket Writers Club award

Tuesday 27th September 2016


Kent captain Charlotte Edwards is the first winner of the Cricket Writers' Club women’s award – the first time the club has specifically honoured a female cricketer in its 70-year history.

Edwards began the year as England captain – a post she had held for a decade – and led her country to the final of the World T20 in India and finished as England’s leading run scorer, and the tournament’s second-highest scorer overall, only to be removed from the England captaincy.

Edwards, 36, retired from international cricket after more than 300 senior games for her country before leading Kent to a domestic double including the county's seventh County Championship.

All the CWC trophies were presented during the course of the Club’s annual lunch at London’s Merchant Taylors’ Hall on Tuesday.
