The 2008 season marked the first time Shrubsole was called up to the England team, on the back of impressive performances for Somerset and in the Super 4s.
The Somerset Academy product is a genuine all-rounder with the capability of bringing something new to the team in both departments.
Shrubsole is another bright prospect for the future, the latest to benefit from England’s policy of blending youth and experience.
She made her one-day debut against South Africa at Shenley in August 2008 and took 3-19 in her first Twenty20 international, against the same opponents.
Shrubsole helped England to World Cup glory in March 2009 but missed their triumphant World Twenty20 campaign in June that year with a back injury.
Continuing to feature for England in both limited-overs formats, she was part of the squad that relinquished the World T20 in 2010.
Injury limited her England participation for much of the next two years, but she returned with a bang on the early 2012 tour of New Zealand.
She took 5-15, the best T20 figures by an England woman, in the opener and 14 wickets in the seven internationals with the White Ferns.
Injury then struck again, but on her comeback she claimed 4-12 in a T20 international with Pakistan and helped England finish runners-up at the World T20 in Sri Lanka.
