In a playing career that spanned a decade, Isa was part of one of the most successful teams in English sporting history when, in 2009, the England Women’s team won two World Cups, an Ashes series and whitewashed the Australians in an ODI series. Prior to this, in 2008 Isa was recognised as the ICC’s number one ranked bowler in a period where she registered career best Test figures of 9-100 to help England win the Ashes in Australia for the first time since 1934/35.
After retirement in 2012, Isa rapidly established herself as a familiar face in sports broadcasting across the globe, including the IPL, CPL, Cricket World Cup and the Olympics. Predominantly working in cricket, during the English summer Isa is part of the Sky Sports and BBC TMS team.
Recently, she was named as a presenter and commentator on Fox Sports’ coverage of Australian cricket, having previously worked in Australia on Triple M’s cricket broadcast.
Incredibly, Isa has also found the time to graduate with a 2.1 (BSc) Hons in Biochemistry at UCL and complete an MPhil in Neuroscience.
A regular on the UK speaking circuit, Isa draws from her experiences in cricket, media and education to deliver motivational talks to a variety of audiences ranging from sports evenings and lectures to conferences and networking events. She has also had great success in event hosting, particularly at sports-related functions.
Isa is sure to be a huge success in Australia and would be a valuable addition to any event as a host, keynote speaker or on a specialist panel.
Isa is represented in Australia by DSEG.
