BARNSLEY woman Katherine Sciver-Brunt is due to play in a cricket World Cup semi-final for England.

The 37-year-old bowler from Dodworth helped her country to two wins this week in the World Twenty20, meaning they topped their group with a perfect record.

They are now due to play hosts South Africa in the semi-final on Friday, with the final on Sunday.

Sciver-Brunt has played 266 games for England across all formats, taking 335 wickets.

Her total of 114 wickets in women’s Twenty20 games is the sixth most of all-time by players from any nation.

She has previously said 2023 will be her last year as an international cricketer and she could retire after this World Cup – especially if they win it.

England recorded an 11-run win over India on Saturday.

Katherine was dismissed for a first ball duck then conceded 39 from three overs but took two catches as India fell short chasing 151.

On Tuesday, England posted a competition record of 213 for five then Pakistan were restricted to 99.

Katherine took a wicket with the second ball of the Pakistan innings and recorded impressive figures of two for 14 from her four overs.
