Bowls Right Arm Fast-Med







Brunt is a talented all-rounder, known more so for being a strike bowler with her skiddy right-arm medium-pace. She joins the Scorchers for the 2015-16, having never played domestically in Australia before. The Englishwoman has vast international experience and has twice been nominated for the ICC Women’s Cricketer of the Year, while she won the 2014 ICC Women’s Spirit of Cricket Award.

She emerged in 2005 when she was a key part of the Women’s Ashes as England regained the crown and has been a regular in international colours since. Brunt played a key role during England’s twin successes in 2009 when they won the ICC Women’s World T20 and ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup titles. The strike bowler won the Player of the Final award in the 2009 ICC Women’s World T20 after taking 3-6 against New Zealand.
