Cricket Deal Direct - Heather Knight announcement

Cricket Deal Direct is pleased to announce that England's Heather Knight has signed with us to promote the innovative SM equipment brand.

Ian Anderson, Managing Director of Cricket Deal Direct (CDD) upon signing the two year deal said: “We are very excited about this agreement with Heather – we have a growing presence in the women’s game and this will allow us to continue our strategy of promoting cricket across all levels and make quality equipment accessible to all.

“Heather is a great representative for us, and a great role model for the sport. Since her stunning début in Women’s cricket in 2010 she has proved an inspirational and popular player”.

Knight made her ODI début in 2010 and went on to make 1000 runs in 44 matches (average of 30). In October 2014 she became the first woman to play overseas, joining Tasmanian Roar in Australia. In 2013, she played a vital part in England Women’s victory at the Ashes, making 157 runs.

“I am really looking forward to using SM kit,” said Knight, “I had heard great things about it and pleased to have now had the opportunity to use it in anger on the tour of New Zealand.”
