Welcome to series 2! We're starting with the legendary Charlotte Edwards CBE. There aren't enough words to describe the impact she has had on the game as a player, coach and commentator. Hopefully, she needs no introduction, as you should be aware of her legendary status. This episode focuses largely on her current times with the defending champions of the RHF Trophy, The Southern Vipers! We chat all things; Georgia Adams, Charlotte Taylor and the squad to remembering playing highlights of 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2014! She's exceptional, a history maker, yet so down to earth and still so driven to make cricket a game for all. We hope you enjoy it!--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/womens-cricket-chat/message
Charlotte Edwards and Isabelle Westbury on the challenges facing women in sport
Sky Sports Cricket Podcast
Former England captain Charlotte Edwards and journalist Isabelle Westbury join Nasser Hussain and Rob Key on The Cricket Show to discuss the challenges facing women in sport, broadcasting and journalism. Plus almost a year on from Australia's victory in the Women's World T20, we catch up with Beth Mooney!
This week Aaron and Brayden were lucky enough to chat to one of the greatest cricketers to ever play the game, Charlotte Edwards MBE. With over 300 international matches and over 200 of those as captain, Charlotte brings a wealth of experience to the table talking about growing up playing cricket with boys, debuting for England at just 16, various Ashes and World Cup wins, why she would rather be Australian and teaching the queen about DRS. Some quality insights and stories that we hope you find as enjoyable as we did! 🏏🏆🏴We’d also like to thanks ECB for audio.
With over 300 games and 10,000 runs to her name, Charlotte Edwards led England to a World Cup double and Ashes win, all in 2009. She truly is a legend of the game - what she’s doing talking to us we don’t know, but we absolutely loved talking to her!We chatted to current Southern Vipers Head Coach Charlotte just after training at the Ageas Bowl one night in early January. We’d tapped up #friendsoftheshow Charlotte Taylor and Emily Windsor for gossip, and we did get one cheeky nugget to ask, but the truth is there was precious little dirt - Charlotte is a keeper!We chat about training through COVID, starting her England career wearing culottes, playing in boys and mens teams growing up - and getting more abuse from their parents than the players themselves. We also discuss the future of women’s cricket and how it looks bright given the introduction of professional contracts for domestic players in 2020. We even talk about the gut-wrenching moment Charlotte was axed from the England squad, 12 months before a home world cup in 2017, a competition her ex-team mates would go on to win.We’ve chatted to so many amazing sports people throughout the last year or so, but Charlotte truly is a giant of her profession and an inspiration to talk to.
