How often does one watch women playing the game of cricket? Of course, very less when compared to men’s cricket. However, women are no less inferior to the men in the talent they possess and the fact that a few women cricketers have competed with/against men, the latest being Kate Cross, is ample proof of this.Here, we look at 5 female cricketers who have played with the men, thus acting as role models for young girls to draw inspiration from:

#1 Kate Cross

England's Kate Cross recently made history by becoming the first woman to play in the Central Lancashire League.

In what is said to be the oldest (123 years) cricket league in England, she bowled seven economic overs for Heywood, giving away just 19 runs and scalping three crucial wickets. By doing so, she paved the way for Heywood to secure a comfortable 8-wicket win.

Following Arran Brindle, she is the latest woman to play a top level league match in England. She was an integral part of the English women's team that won a series in the Caribbean for the very first time and also played a vital role in the team that retained the Ashes in 2014.
