Natalie Sciver (/ˈsɪvər/; born 20 August 1992) is an English cricketer.[1]


Sciver's mother, an employee of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, was based in Japan at the time of Sciver's birth. Before moving to England, Sciver had also lived in Poland, where she played in women's league football, and the Netherlands, where she played regional junior squad tennis.


She began playing cricket as a teenager, and played for Surrey club side Stoke d'Abernon. She also played cricket at school, playing in the Epsom College school 1st XI for two seasons. After a period in Surrey's Academy she played for the Surrey county team and progressed to the England Women's Academy. After some successful games in the Academy team, she was selected for the 2013 limited-overs series against Pakistan where she made her debut for the full England side. In a T20 game against New Zealand, she became the first England cricketer to take an international T20 hat-trick.[2]

Sciver made her Test debut against Australia at Perth in the 2013/14 Ashes series, scoring a total of 72 runs and taking one wicket. She also played in the recent Test against India.

She is the holder of one of the first tranche of 18 ECB central contracts for women players, which were announced in April 2014.[3]

In April 2015, she was named as one of the England women's Academy squad tour to Dubai, where England women will play their Australian counterparts in two 50-over games, and two Twenty20 matches.[4]

Non-cricket activity

As of 2014, Sciver was studying sports and exercise science at Loughborough University.[5]
