England Women's captain Charlotte Edwards has been in action for her country in the last week.

Edwards, who is from Pidley and works for the Hunts County Bats company, skippered England to victory in the first match of the one-day series against India at Lord's on Monday and guided her side to a draw in the Leicester test match against the same opposition at the weekend.

However Edwards will be concerned with her own form as she has been struggling to find her batting rhythm in recent matches.

She followed her duck in the Twenty20 international with India at the start of the month with scores of 16 and four in the test match.

In the first one day game on Monday Edwards was run out without scoring but did at least skipper her side to a 100-run victory.
