2. Laura Marsh, England:
She began playing cricket at 11 and started her career as a medium pace bowler but found greater success when she switched to off-spin. She plays county cricket for Sussex, represents the Rubies and made her Test debut against India in 2006. She was part of the England team that retained the Ashes in Australia in 2008 and in England in 2009.
She opened the bowling for England in the Twenty20 World Championship in 2009, taking 6 for 68 in the tournament which England won by defeating New Zealand at Lords. In the absence of Sarah Taylor, she opened the batting for England in the Twenty20 series against Australia in 2010 as well as opening the bowling and being named a player of the match in England”s series-winning win at Canberra on 16 January 2010. She is beautifully mixed with talent.
