Beth Mooney, the ICC’s current Women’s T20 Player of the Year, insists she still has improving to do.

The Yorkshire Diamonds overseas Australian wicketkeeper bat has enjoyed a memorable 18 months at international and domestic level.

In the ICC awards voting period from September 2016 to late last year, Mooney scored 255 runs from seven T20 internationals, including scores of 117 not out and 86 in the Women’s Ashes in November.

Mooney, 24, also scooped the ICC’s Emerging Player award having made a strong contribution in ODIs, scoring 492 runs in 14 games.

Earlier this year, she was also the fourth highest run-scorer in the Big Bash Down Under with 465 as an opener for Brisbane Heat.

It means she started her second Kia Super League campaign at the weekend brimming with confidence, but hoping to enhance her upward trajectory in a White Rose shirt, which she wore back in 2016.

“I’m probably in a position where I’m more comfortable and confident with my T20 game,” said the Diamonds opener, who was run out for three in Sunday’s defeat to Western Storm.

“The last 18 months has been really exciting to get the opportunities and make the most of them.

“Hopefully I can transfer that into the Super League with the Diamonds and learn a few more things.
