In episode 24 we talk with cricket legend and World Cup (2009) winner Ebony Rainford-Brent. We discuss how she’s navigated the ups and downs of her career and how she’s constantly seeking out new opportunities to grow and develop within and beyond cricket.
Ebony is a former English cricketer, who was the first black woman to play for the England team and also captained the Surrey Women’s team. Since retiring from cricket, Ebony has gone on to become the first Director of Women’s Cricket at Surrey County Cricket Club; pundit and broadcaster for the BBC flagship radio programme Test Match Special (she is one of the first female expert summarisers to commentate on men’s international cricket matches); and is also a Motivational Speaker and hosts ‘The Art of Success’ a fortnightly motivational podcast.
Ebony was a member of the England Team that won the 9th ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup in Sydney 2009. In the three months following their World Cup win, the team went on to win: the ICC Women’s World Twenty20, the Natwest One Day series and retained the Ashes.
