The left-arm spinner Kirstie Gordon is all set to play for Kent in the upcoming season of 2020. The club announced the news on Wednesday (January 29). Earlier, she was a part of Nottinghamshire since 2016.
The Scotland-born orthodox spinner has played a Test and five shorter formats for England after making her Test debut in the Ashes in 2019. She also played in the T20 World Cup in 2018. Moreover, she has three Test wickets and eight T20I wickets in her kitty.
“Everyone associated with Kent Women is delighted that Kirstie has decided to joing us at Kent,” said Paul Downton, Director of Cricket of Kent about her. “She has consistently taken wickets, especially in T20 cricket, across all levels of the game and her efforts so far in England colours have shown what an exciting young spinner she is.”
Kirstie Gordon is considered as one of the key players and also played in the KIA Super League for Loughborough Lightning. The 22-year-old player was the ninth leading wicket-taker in Division One of the National T20 competition, despite having bowled fewer overs compared to those in the top ten. She bagged eight wickets at an average of 6.50 and a wonderful economy rate of 3.71. In the County Championship games, she picked up six wickets last year as well.
