Former England batter, Lydia Greenway, who was part of the broadcast team for the Women’s Premier League (WPL) Auction will now be part of the tournament. The 37-year-old will take charge as the fielding coach for the Mumbai Indians (MI), under the watchful eyes of the former England skipper, Charlotte Edwards.
Greenway has represented England 225 times, including being in the same team that was led by Edwards. The English batter was last involved in the backroom staff with the Barmy Army Team in last year’s FairBreak Invitational before opting out of The Hundred where she could have been part of the Oval Invincibles side. Mumbai Indians' backroom staff already has legendary cricketers, in the form of Edwards, Jhulan Goswami, with Greenway now adding more sheen to their backroom presence.
The 37-year-old will be yet another English figure in the WPL scene, with the presence of Jonathan Batty (Delhi Capitals), Jon Lewis (Lucknow) and Lisa Keightley (Delhi).
