Role: Right-hand bat, right-arm medium

Dani Gibson’s sporting talent has long been obvious: she was good enough to be selected at national age-group level by cricket and hockey, with the Cheltenham-born allrounder ultimately opting to focus on the former.

A prolific centre-forward for Gloucester City with stick – rather than bat – in hand, she went to school at Dean Close and is a product of Hartpury College, the alma mater of several international sportspeople, including England rugby player Jonny May.

Her father, Mike, was a good enough cricketer in his own youth to represent Leicestershire at second team level.

Injury frustrations – first with a fractured finger and then with a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament – restricted the bowling allrounder, who plays her club cricket for Dumbleton, to just two Western Storm appearances in 2019 and 2020.

She remains highly thought of despite those fitness issues: Gibson has been part of England youth programmes since 2014 and will represent London Spirit in The Hundred.
