Edwards retired from international cricket in 2016. She made her England debut in 1996 and is the only player - man or woman - to captain England in 200 internationals.

During her international career, Edwards led England to the 2009 World Cup and World T20 titles, also winning four Ashes series against Australia.

“I’m looking forward to the next chapter and I walk away happy,” Edwards said.

“I knew halfway through the Super League tournament that it was my last year but I’ve enjoyed every minute.”

Edwards scored over 10,000 runs in her international acreer after making her England debut at the sage of 16.
