Holly Colvin

Holly Colvin became one of England Womenís star names after graduating with Durham MCCU.

A left-arm spinner, Colvin studied Natural Sciences between 2009 and 2012 at Durham, combining her studies with being a regular in the England team ñ having made her international debut as a 15-year-old. She became the youngest England Test cricketer of either gender.

She went on to play five Tests, 72 one-day internationals and 50 Twenty20 internationals, and became an ICC World Cup and ICC World T20 winner in 1999, as England lifted both trophies in quick succession.

After winning the Ashes in 2013, she took a break from the game to work for the charity Cricket Without Boundaries, before returning to play for her county Sussex in 2015.

However she decided to call time on her playing career altogether later that year, at the age of 26, to take up an administrative position at the ICC in Dubai.
