On her birthday, watch Kate Cross weave magic with the ball

Kate Cross is a vital cog in England’s wheel, with her penetrative fast-bowling laying the foundation for many a victory. The pacer bowls in tight channels outside the off-stump and is routinely rewarded for her discipline, as can be seen in the compilation below, where she picks up the wickets of Shafali Verma and Harmanpreet Kaur. The ball cut back in after pitching and went through the gap between the opener’s bat and pad.

The senior pro has 50 ODI wickets under her belt in 35 matches to go along with 1,112 runs.
