The daughter of 1980 FA Cup winner, David Cross, Kate Cross is a multi-format England international with over 60 caps and a 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 Women’s Big Bash, and, like many of her teammates, represents Manchester Originals in The Hundred.

Thunder’s go-to opening bowler when England commitments allow, Cross took four wickets in four Charlotte Edwards Cup matches and a further eight wickets in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy in 2021.

Handy with the bat, she also chipped in with 109 List A runs – including a half-century against Southern Vipers – and 46 T20 runs at a strike rate of 124.32.

Off the field, she co-hosts a cricket podcast – No Balls – with Thunder teammate Alex Hartley.
