Morgan is a middle-order batter and useful seamer who has featured for England for over a decade.
She began playing cricket at the age of 13 and represented her country at under-17, under-21 and England A levels.
Her first senior international involvement came as part of the squad that won the Women's European Championship one-day competition in 1999. She made her debut in the six-wicket victory over the Netherlands, taking 1-13 in 10 overs.
Morgan returned to the full England side in 2003, playing two ODIs against South Africa in August.
She made her Test debut in the summer of 2005, featuring in both matches and aiding England’s first Ashes win for 42 years.
Morgan helped England retain the Ashes in early 2008 in the one-off Test at Bowral and also go unbeaten that summer.
She was involved in the 2009 World Cup and World Twenty20 triumphs, notably making 46 not out in an unbroken 122-run partnership with Claire Taylor in England’s T20 semi-final win against Australia.
More success followed that summer when Morgan top-scored for England with 58 as they retained the Ashes by drawing the one-off Test at Worcester.
In October 2010 she was awarded a coaching contract by the ECB and Cricket Foundation to work in Middlesex and London schools as a coach and ambassador for the Chance to shine programme, aimed at boosting participation at grassroots level.
