Heather Knight: England Captain Excited To ‘Score Runs’ In West Indies As She Rules Out ‘Mankad’ Tactic

Heather Knight returns to captain England in their white-ball series against West Indies having missed over three months following hip surgery; wicketkeeper batter Amy Jones named vice-captain after leading side against India.

Returning England captain Heather Knight says she is “100 per cent fit” after almost three months out with a hip injury and ruled out England using the ‘Mankad’ tactic against the West Indies.

Having undergone surgery in August, England’s captain returns for the three one-day internationals and five T20 internationals in the Caribbean, which will be played between December 4 and December 22.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s opening ODI, Knight said: “Recovery has been really good, been three months of hard work in the gym. I feel really good, hip feels in a good place and pretty confident I am 100 per cent fit. The next few days is building it up so I am ready to play the first game on Sunday. Feeling refreshed.”
