Lydia Greenway voted England Supporters’ Player of Women’s Ashes

Monday 7th September 2015


Kent and England bat Lydia Greenway won a fans' poll to decide the England Supporters' Player of the Women's Ashes series.

The Kent Cricket Academy graduate secured more than 57 per cent of the votes on the CricketHer website after after scoring 202 runs and taking four catches against Australia this summer.

CricketHer wrote: "This summer has seen a renewed determination from Greenway to defend her wicket. Having largely pared back her game to a big, solid forward defensive and of course her trademark sweeps.
"Her strike rate has been down somewhat on her career overall; but at a time when England’s middle-order has needed backbone more than anything else, the new Greenway’s presence has been a welcome one.
"Meanwhile her sharpness in the field continues to be worth an extra 10-20 runs in every game she plays; not to mention her 4 catches and three run-outs in the series."
