Kate Cross becomes Lancashire Cricket Women's leading Championship wicket taker

Kate Cross is now Lancashire Cricket Women’s all-time leading wicket taker in the Women’s County Championship.

Cross achieved the feat during Sunday’s season opener, and 10 wicket win, over Middlesex.

The 26-year-old recorded figures of 3/26 as Middlesex were dismissed for 120, the third of which took her to the 80 wicket landmark, as she bowled Gayatri Gole for one.

Cross has overtaken current Lancashire Women’s and Girls Manager, Jen Barden who held the previous record of 79.

The right-arm medium-fast bowler now has 80 wickets, taken at an average of 19.97 and an economy rate of just 3.24 and is one of just four players to rack up over 1,000 runs for Lancashire in the County Championship.

Reaction from Kate Cross on Twitter this weekend

Dan Atkinson, Head Coach of Lancashire Cricket Women, said, "It is a brilliant achievement for Kate and it is a record that she is thoroughly deserving of. She is a fantastic role model for aspiring cricketers, not just in Lancashire, but around the country.

"Hopefully she will pick up many more wickets for Lancashire this summer and we can have another successful season after winning the double last year."
