The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Et Sport -

CHAR­LOTTE Edwards MBE is more than just an in­ter­na­tional crick­eter. The lit­tle girl who grew up in a crick­et­mad fam­ily on the out­skirts of Ram­sey is a sport­ing am­bas­sador.

Char­lotte’s name was one of those men­tioned in the furore sur­round­ing the lack of women on the short­list of this year’s BBC Sports Per­son­al­ity of theyear award. That’s how highly she is now re­garded.

And no won­der. Not only has she be­come the most-capped one-day in­ter­na­tional crick­eter in the world this year, she has also led Eng­land to vic­tory in World Cups, the Ashes and many other one-day se­ries.
