2 MINUTES WITH… Alex Hartley

Throughout the Kia Super League, we’ll be featuring short interviews with players, coaches & other interesting people we find around and about at the grounds. In yesterday’s Surrey Stars win over Lancashire Thunder, left-arm spinner Alex Hartley featured heavily, taking 3-11 in her 4 overs. She answers our quick-fire questions below…

If not Surrey Stars, who would you like to win?

I’m going to have to say Loughborough Lightning, because Evelyn [Jones] and Macca [Alex MacDonald] play there.

Who would you like to see playing in KSL that isn’t?

I’d love to see Meg Lanning come over and play. Unfortunately she couldn’t this year because she’s injured, but it would be great in future.

Favourite KSL player?

Er…that’s hard! Tammy Beaumont (so I don’t get kicked out of the house!)

Justin Bieber or One Direction?

Justin Bieber! Without a doubt!

Favourite cricket ground?

I love the Ageas Bowl.

Favourite thing on the menu in Nandos?

Lemon and herb butterfly chicken and chips. I’m not a spice person!

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Hopefully being England’s number 1 spinner and winning the World Cup!

Where do you see women’s cricket in 10 years?

Hopefully it’s massive. With the KSL we want thousands of people coming to watch, so hopefully it’ll get like that.
