25 Most Glamorous Women Cricketers in the World 2017

After Womens World Cup 2017, Women Cricket is getting more attention than ever around the globe. World is mesmerized not only by their performance in the ground but also by their beauty. Here we go with list of 18 most beautiful women crickets in the world 2017.

Laura Marsh

Laura Marsh began her career as a medium-pace seamer, and was called into the England side in 2006 to make her debut against India, after an injury to Nicky Shaw. However, injuries caused her to reinvent herself as an off-spinner the following year, a move which proved beneficial both to herself and England.

Ellyse Perry

Ellyse Perry became the youngest Australian ever to play international cricket when she debuted in the second ODI of the Rose Bowl series against New Zealand in July 2007, before her 17th birthday, despite never having played a domestic match at the senior level. Considered a genuine all-round prospect right from the start, Perry's stellar rise has seen her take on the role of pace spearhead in the Australian bowling attack.

Isa Guha

Bustling medium-pacer Isa Guha made her international debut in 2001 aged 16, in the Women's European Championship. She was intrinsic to England's success in their five-match one-day series against New Zealand in 2004, and took 5 for 22 in the fourth match, as England wrapped up the series. She took five wickets in the Test series and eight in the ODIs against India in 2006. Isa made her debut against India in 2002 in the quadrangular tournament between England, New Zealand and India and the Test series in India, taking five wickets.

Sarah Taylor

One of the most naturally talented players England have produced, Sarah Taylor burst on to the scene in 2006 with a run-a-ball 61 in her fourth ODI against India and a maiden century followed early the next year against Australia in Chennai.

Rosalie Birch

Allrounder Rosalie Birch burst onto the international scene in 2003 aged 19, scooping four wickets in a drawn Test with South Africa at Shenley. And her wicket-taking form at the highest level has continued, earning her the nickname Golden Arm for her ability to pick up victims at crucial phases and swing a match in England's favour. But this is nowhere more evidenced than in the one-day format of the game, where Birch has already recorded figures of 5 for 50, and her average has never gone above 17.5. In an international career with many high points, the pinnacle so far is undoubtedly helping England to win the Ashes in 2005 after 42 long years.

Holly Ferling

Holly Lee Ferling born in December 22, 1995, Kingaroy, Queensland. She plays for Australia Women, Brisbane Heat Women, Queensland Under-15s Women, Queensland Women.

Sana Mir

Sana Mir has born on January 5, 1986, Abbottabad, North-West Frontier Province Pakistan. She plays for Pakistan Women, South Zone Women (Pakistan).

Sara McGlashan

With over 200 international appearances for New Zealand under her belt, Sara McGlashan has had one of the longest-running and most successful careers of any White Fern representative. The brother of fellow New Zealand international Peter McGlashan, she beat him to represent their country by four years when she made her debut in an ODI against the Netherlands in June 2002.

Mithali Raj

Mithali Raj at 19 emerged as one of India's most capable batsmen with a staggering 214 against England in the second and final Test at Taunton. The middle-order bat now has the second highest score in women's Test cricket, having been surpassed by Kiran Baluch who scored 242 against West Indies in March 2004.

Leah Poulton

Leah Poulton is an explosive batsman who was called into the Australian senior set-up for the first time in September 2006 on the back of a strong domestic season, where she scored 325 runs at an average of 32.5. Described as "a talented player with a free-flowing game," by Margaret Jennings, the Australian chairman of selectors, Poulton did not disappoint her backers and made a series-clinching century in only her third ODI. With her 101, Australia sealed the Rose Bowl series 3-0 with two games to spare and she became the fourth Australian to score a century against New Zealand.

Katherine Brunt

Cricket is in Katherine Brunt's blood - she first played the game through joining in the nets with her brother at the family's club, Barnsley, where her dad played for the 2nd XI. A skiddy fast bowler, she represented Yorkshire at Under-15 and Under-17 level, but took a break from county cricket at the age of 17 because she was overweight and not really enjoying the game.

Aimee Watkins

A spin-bowling allrounder, Aimee Watkins first came to the notice of the New Zealand selectors as a member of the New Plymouth Girls' High School team which won the 2000/2001 Yoplait Cup. A true allrounder, she is a powerful hitter of the ball and an accurate offspin bowler. She was a member of the 2001 New Zealand Cricket Academy and toured Australia with the New Zealand 'A' team, later debuting for New Zealand in the 2001-02 Rose Bowl Series.

Meg Lanning

Aptly nicknamed "the Megastar", Meg Lanning has achieved an incredible amount for someone so young. In 2006 she became the first girl to play first XI cricket for a Public Schools team when she represented Carey Grammar at the age of 14. Her ODI debut came in 2011 against England, and in only her second game, she scored an unbeaten 103, becoming at 18 years and 288 days old the youngest Australian - male or female - to score an international century. A year later, in an ODI against New Zealand, she broke the record for the fastest century by an Australian, racking up her ton in a mere 45 balls.

Trisha Chetty

Trisha Chetty is one of a core of young South African women who have broken into the national team in 2007, taking over the gloves from Daleen Terblanche. She is an athletic keeper who has impressed while playing for Kwa-Zulu Natal. She has so far batted down the order at seven or eight and has made an encouraging start with the bat. She was also called-up to represent Africa in the Twenty20 match against Asia.

Dane van Niekerk

A leg-spinning all-rounder who turns the ball prodigiously, Dane van Niekerk made her international debut for South Africa at the 2009 World Cup in Australia, playing in South Africa's loss to the West Indies in the group stages, and then taking 3 for 11 as South Africa beat Sri Lanka in the 7th place play-off later in the tournament.

Mignon du Preez

Scoring a double-century in a 40-over game is impressive by anyone's standards, but when a 12-year-old schoolgirl does it, people sit up and take notice. Step forward Mignon du Preez, who hit 16 sixes and 25 fours in an innings of 258, with a strike rate of over 200, in a provincial Under-13 match between Gauteng and North Gauteng.

Smriti Mandhana

Smriti Shriniwas Mandhana was born on July 18, 1996, Bombay (now Mumbai), Maharashtra. She is a Left-hand bater and right-arm off break bowler.

Shubhlakshmi Sharma

Shubhlakshmi Rajendra Sharma was born on December 31, 1989, Hazaribagh, Bihar, India. She plays for India Blue Women and India Women.

Marizanne Kapp

Marizanne Kapp has progressed to become one of South Africa Women's premier all-rounders since making her international debut at the 2009 World Cup in Australia. She holds the record for the highest-ever score by a South African at Women's World Cups: 102* against Pakistan at Cuttack in 2013. During the course of her innings, she also forged a 128-run stand with Dane van Niekerk, which is the highest-ever partnership for South Africa Women at a World Cup. She took 3 for 18 with her medium pace in the same game to ensure her side progressed to the Super Sixes stage.

Amy Satterthwaite

All-rounder Amy Satterthwaite, who hails from Canterbury, is a right-arm medium pacer who bats left-handed. Known as "Branch" due to her distinct height advantage, she debuted for her state side - the Canterbury Magicians - in 2003, aged 16. After scoring a century on the Canterbury team's tour of England in 2006, Satterthwaite was selected for the New Zealand A team, for matches against the White Ferns and India in 2006.

Jess Jonassen

Jess Jonassen was born on November 5, 1992, Emerald, Queensland. She plays for Australia Under-21s Women, Australia Women, Brisbane Heat Women, Queensland Women.

Harmanpreet Kaur

Harmanpreet Kaur lives and swears by her idol Virender Sehwag's mantra of 'see ball, hit ball.' She represents the new-age India women's cricketer, part of a generation that has been at the center of ad campaigns, endorsements and central contracts. She's a path-breaker too, having become the first India cricketer - male or female - to sign a Big Bash League contract with Sydney Thunder in Australia. The deal came about on the back of an impressive showing during India's tour of Australia in January 2016, where she made a 31-ball 46 to script India's highest-ever T20 chase. In June 2017, she became the first Indian to sign with Surrey Stars in ECB's Kia Super League.

Natalie Sciver

Natalie Sciver was born in Tokyo and first played cricket while growing up in the Netherlands, though it was initially her third-choice sport after football and tennis. She is a genuine all-rounder who, on the back of impressive performances for Surrey in the County Championship in the 2012 and 2013 seasons, was called up for England for their 2013 series against Pakistan. She stormed onto the international scene that summer, taking 3 for 28 against Pakistan and claiming the Player of the Match award in only her second ODI.

Suné Luus

Suné Luus was born on January 5, 1996. She plays for Northerns Women, South Africa Under-19s Women, South Africa Women.

Heather Knight

Heather Knight was left with big shoes to fill when she was named England captain in June 2016 following the retirement of Charlotte Edwards. It was, though, a natural progression for Knight who had been Edwards' vice-captain since 2014 and had built captaincy experience with Berkshire in county cricket and Hobart Hurricanes in the WBBL.
