Dubliner and Ireland international Gaby Lewis has been named by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in the Women’s T20I Team of the Year.
Lewis, 20, made 325 runs in 2021 in T20I matches at an average of 40.62. This included registering the first-ever century in the format for Ireland Women (105* v Germany).
Despite still only being 20 years old, Lewis has played 48 T20 Internationals for Ireland since her debut in 2014. Her form and talent saw her breakthrough into white-ball franchise cricket this year for the first time, being part of the Southern Brave team that won the inaugural The Hundred competition, and joining the Southern Vipers for the latter part of their Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy campaign.
Lewis is the daughter of former Ireland Men’s captain Alan Lewis, and her sister Robyn has also appeared at international level for Ireland.
