The daughter of 1980 FA Cup winner, David Cross, Kate Cross is a multi-format England international with over 70 caps and a Women's World Cup final appearance to her name.
She made her debut for Lancashire aged just 13 and made history in 2006 when she became the first female to earn an academy contract at the county.
Cross has previously captained Lancashire Thunder in the Kia Super League, played for Brisbane Heat and Perth Scorchers in the WBBL, and represented Manchester Originals in The Hundred. She will, however, cross the Pennines for the 2023 edition after being picked up by Northern Superchargers.
Thunder's go-to opening bowler when England commitments allow, Cross scored 71 runs and took four wickets in four outings in 2022.
Off the field, she co-hosts a cricket podcast – No Balls – with Thunder teammate Alex Hartley and works as a commentator.
