Liberty Heap burst onto the scene during the Under-19s Women's T20 World Cup, scoring 149 runs at a strike rate of 143.26 as England reached the final.
The young batter came through the Lancashire pathway, captaining the side at Under-15s, before making her Thunder bow in 2020. She finished the season with five wickets and 28 runs to her name.
She made a further three List A appearances in 2021 and 2022, striking above 140 in the latter campaign to once again flex her batting potential, but is yet to make her Charlotte Edwards Cup bow. Given her performances on the international stage, however, you'd expect her to feature in 2023.
Heap has many strings to her bow, proving herself adept as both an opener and a finisher across her short career as well as being a handy extra spin option, and was awarded a professional contract ahead of the 2023 campaign.
She plays her club cricket for Lowerhouse CC.
