Described by her teammates as chaotic and full of energy, Nat Wraith is certainly one to watch as we prepare for the 2023 season. Making her county debut for Gloucestershire in 2016, Wraith has more than established herself as a formidable wicket keeper/batsman in the women’s game.

After joining Somerset in the 2019 season, Wraith went to work immediately, scoring her maiden county half century against Durham to solidify her place in the Somerset squad. Even more impressive is her wicket keeping record. In the 2019 season alone, she took 10 stumpings in Women’s Twenty20 Cup - the most across the competition that season. Her form continued into the turbulent 2020 season where she took ten wickets in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy and a further six in the Charlotte Edwards Cup, making her the leading keeper in terms of dismissals in both competitions. She is definitely not a wicket keeper any batsman would want to take on. 

Wraith also joined Western Storm for the 2019 season but really excelled for the team in 2020 where she averaged 22.20. The 2021 and 2022 seasons saw her solidify her place for Western Storm, playing every game in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy and Charlotte Edwards Cup. She has continued performing for Somerset throughout her career so far and broke into the Welsh Fire side for the inaugural season of The Hundred. She then transferred to London Spirit and has remained there since. Although we haven’t seen much of her yet in the tournament, it is only a matter of time until this vibrant cricketer makes her mark. 

By far one of her greatest achievements is playing for the England Academy where she made her debut in 2019. We eagerly await her England Women’s debut. 

777 Cricket can’t wait to see what this exciting player does next!
