Danielle Hazell: Ex-England captain becomes new Durham Women boss

Must read

Former England captain Danielle Hazell has been appointed as Durham Women’s new head coach.

Hazell, 36, who took 146 wickets with her off spin in 141 appearances for England, twice won the Women’s World Cup and also enjoyed three Ashes victories.

Having been head coach of Yorkshire-based Northern Diamonds since 2019, she has now signed a three-year deal with Durham to take the club on following the England and Wales Cricket Board’s restructure of the women’s professional game.

“This is an exciting new chapter for Durham Cricket and the whole of the region, and I wanted to be part of it,” said Hazell.

“I feel aligned with the club’s ambitions and standards to continually grow and move forward in such a pivotal moment for women and girls’ cricket.

“I knew after initial conversations; it was the right opportunity for me to return to my home club.”
