Born on December 16, 1940, Enid Bakewell played for the English women's cricket team in 12 Tests and in 23 One-Day International matches between 1968 and 1979. A right-hand batter and left-arm spinner, Bakewell is widely considered the best-ever English all-rounder in women’s cricket. In Tests, she scored 1,078 runs at an average of 59.88 with four centuries, while taking 50 wickets at an average of 16.62. She scored an unbeaten 112 and took 10 for 75 in a match against West Indies at Edgbaston in 1979. Bakewell became the third women to be inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame – in 2012 – after Rachael Heyhoe-Flint and Belinda Clark.
