Charlotte Marie Edwards CBE (born 17 December 1979) is a former English professional cricketer who was captain of the England women's team.[1] Edwards announced her retirement from international cricket in May 2016.[2][3]

International career

At the time when she made her England debut in 1995, she became the youngest player ever to play for England later bettered by team-mate Holly Colvin.

In 1997, she scored 12 centuries, including one off 118 balls against the touring South Africans. The day before her 18th birthday, she scored a then-record ODI score of 173 not out in a World Cup match against Ireland women's cricket team. In 1998–99, she scored her maiden Test hundred against India, but, while still scoring runs, fell below expectations. In 2000, she was sidelined by a serious cruciate ligament injury sustained while playing hockey, and causing her to miss most of the 2001 season.

In 2005, she stepped up from her role as England vice-captain to take full charge of the side when Clare Connor was injured, and was appointed full-time when Connor retired in March 2006. She plays her county cricket for Kent, whom she captains.

She played her 100th One-Day International on tour in Australia and led her team to victory in the one-off Test match at Bowral to retain The Ashes, scoring 94 in England's first innings, and hitting the winning runs in the second.

She won the ICC Woman's player of the year 2008 at the ICC awards ceremony at Dubai. She led the England team in the 2009 World Cup in Australia scoring a half century and taking a career best 4 for 37 in the Super Six victory over New Zealand, before captaining the side to a 4-wicket victory over the same opposition in the World Cup Final in Sydney.

She led England team to victory at Lord's in the final of the World Twenty20 Championship in June 2009. She scored 139 runs in the tournament, the third highest total, and took 4 wickets at 14.5 apiece, before recording an unbeaten half century in the second innings to help England team retain The Ashes with a draw in the one-off Ashes test at New Road in Worcester.

On 17 November 2010, she won her 142nd One Day International cap when she captained England team against Sri Lanka.[4] This appearance gave her the record number of ODI appearances, beating Australian Karen Rolton's 141. She took a career best 4 for 30 in the game. Clare Connor, the England and Wales Cricket Board's Head of Women's Cricket, praised Edwards' achievement, calling her as "a credit to women's cricket globally, a superb role model for girls who aspire to play for their country".

She scored her first Ashes century in England's one-off Test against Australia at Bankstown Oval on 22 January 2010, finishing unbeaten on 114 out of England's first innings of 207 all out.

In 2014, Edwards was named as one of the five Wisden Cricketers of the Year. She was the second English women's cricketer to be so honoured, following on from Claire Taylor who was similarly cited in 2009.[5]

She is the holder of one of the first tranche of 18 ECB central contracts for women players.[6]
