History has been made in England’s domestic women’s cricket as a new star is born in the form of Momentum Proteas all-rounder Nadine de Klerk. 

The young cricketer has captured the imagination of the English cricketing fraternity with her remarkable performance in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy.

Playing for The Blaze against current champions, Northern Diamonds, de Klerk displayed an extraordinary level of skill and talent, finishing with a record-breaking figures of 7/33 in just 9.1 overs. 

Her exceptional bowling performance resulted in the Diamonds being bundled out for a meagre 62, leaving the opposition stunned and cricket fans around the world cheering.

De Klerk’s outstanding display of bowling began right from the start of the match, where she took the new ball and bowled eight overs on the trot. She relentlessly tore into the Diamond’s batting line up, which had collapsed to a dismal 53/7 in 15 overs, showcasing her ferocious and tenacious spirit.

Despite losing wickets at regular intervals in their reply, the Blaze got over the line to win the low scoring affair by four wickets.

The 2023 season has seen de Klerk join the Blaze, where she has added her experience to the team’s roster. 

Speaking about her move to England, de Klerk expressed her excitement at being a part of the bright and thriving landscape of women’s cricket. Alongside fellow senior internationals such as Nat Sciver-Brunt, Sarah Glenn, and Tammy Beaumont, de Klerk is set to become a major force to be reckoned with in women’s cricket.

As history is made, it is clear that Nadine de Klerk’s exceptional performance will be remembered for years to come in the annals of English cricketing history.
