Subject: Eileen Ash: World's oldest Test cricketer dies at age of 110

Written By: Philip Eno on 12/06/21 at 7:00 am

Eileen Ash, the world's oldest former Test cricketer, has died aged 110.

The bowler made her England debut in 1937, played seven Tests either side of World War Two and retired in 1949.

Eighty years after making her international debut, Ash rang the bell at Lord's before England's victory in the 2017 Women's World Cup final.

ECB managing director of women's cricket and former England captain Clare Connor said Ash was a "pioneer" of the sport.
