Heather Knight names England women's team skipper

London, June 3 (IBNS): Heather Knight has been appointed as the skipper of England women's cricket team, officials said.

"The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) today announced that Heather Knight has been appointed as captain of the England women’s cricket team across all three formats of the game," read the official website.

Speaking about her appointment, Knight was quoted as saying by the website: “I'm hugely proud and honoured to be named England captain and can't wait to face the challenges ahead. It's a fresh, exciting time for the team and I'm looking forward to seeing how we can develop together at the start of this new era for England women’s cricket. All our focus is now on what we have to come, starting with the Pakistan series this summer."

“It will be no easy task to follow the remarkable success and impact that Charlotte Edwards enjoyed at the helm of the England team over the last ten years – she has been a wonderful servant to the game, an inspirational leader and truly world class player," the cricketer said.

“She is a true cricketing legend and it has been a privilege to share a dressing room with her for the first six years of my England career. But I am excited by the challenge and will look to utilise the incredible platform that Lottie has laid to ensure that the England women’s team continues to grow and develop," she said.

Her first assignment will be against Pakistan later this month in the three-match Royal London One-Day International and three-match NatWest Twenty20 International series.
