After rewriting #HERstory last year, England Women return to Edgbaston for the next chapter of their story to face an up-and-coming Pakistan team. 

Last year, over 19,000 supporters visited Edgbaston to see Heather Knight’s side take on Australia, in what turned into the ‘best women’s series in history’. 

Despite narrowly losing to Australia that night, Jon Lewis’ side showed a new brand of England women’s cricket, one that promises to entertain fans for years to come. 

Fast forward to 2024, women’s cricket is growing rapidly, with demand for tickets higher than ever before. 9,000 fans have already purchased their tickets for Saturday 11 May where the two teams will go head-to-head in Birmingham for the first time.

This wouldn’t have been possible without those that paved the way for women and girls to pick up the bat and ball and this year’s #HERstory campaign, shines the light on some of those names in women’s cricket throughout the generations.  

The ‘Then. Now. Forever.’ campaign features past players Charlotte Edwards and Ebony Rainford-Brent, who are both still heavily involved in women’s cricket, alongside current players Nat Sciver-Brunt, Sophia Dunkley and Issy Wong. Rachel Heyhoe-Flint, a pioneer of women’s cricket and held in high-regard across the world for her work to normalise women and girls playing cricket, is also prominent.

Claire Connor describes Rachel Heyhoe-Flint “one of our sport’s true pioneers” and has “paved the way for the progress enjoyed by recent generations of female cricketers”.

Speaking about the campaign Sophia Dunkley said: “To see a total 110,000 attendance across last season’s Women’s Ashes was brilliant.

“I think for us as a team, the Lionesses laid a marker during the previous summer and it has really brought us together to try and inspire and entertain the next generation which is what we always strive to do every time we take to the field and this summer will be no different.”

Nat Sciver-Brunt reflected on what was a record breaking year for attendances: “In last year’s Ashes, we tested ourselves against the best team in the world, in big-pressure moments, in sold-out crowds in the biggest Ashes series we’ve had. The support was immense.”

Looking forward to 2024 the ICC Cricketer of the Year highlights the importance of inspiring the next generation: “We want to win games for England.

“For us, it’s about how we want to play, and using that to inspire and entertain the nation and people who come to watch.”
