Emily Windsor


Emily Lauren Windsor was born on 14th June 1997 in Portsmouth, Hampshire and is a right handed batter and right arm medium bowler.

Windsor has represented Hampshire since the age of 15, and has been part of the Southern Vipers set up since 2018.

She scored two half-centuries in the 2014 Women’s County Championship and ended the competition with 133 runs.

The following year, she recorded her career-best List A score of 99, and best figures of 6-23 against Northamptonshire in the same game.

Windsor featured in six matches in the inaugural Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy where she scored 112 runs at an average of 37 with a best of 47*against South East Stars, and was the second top scorer for the Vipers in the final, with 37 runs, as they beat Northern Diamonds to win the first RHF Trophy.

She then played all eight matches of the 2021 Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy, with another best of 47*, this time in the nail-biting final, once again against Northern Diamonds, in a gutsy innings on a difficult batting pitch.

Windsor also played all seven Charlotte Edwards Cup matches in 2021, scoring 60 runs at an average of 30, but didn’t feature in the 2022 edition of the tournament.

She signed a short-term rolling loan at the start of the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy season, but scored a quickfire 90 on her recall against South East Stars – her highest score in a Vipers shirt.

Windsor ended up as the Vipers’ leading run scorer in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy, and the fourth highest in the whole competition, with 288 runs, at an average of 57.60.

The batter is quickly becoming a household name, not just on the pitch but also off it, as she provides commentary on England women and Hampshire matches for BBC Test Match Special and BBC Solent respectively.

After being voted as the Vipers' Players' Player of the Year for 2022, and averaging over 60 with the bat for the team in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy the same year, Windsor was awarded her first professional contract in November 2022.

A slow start in 2023 for Windsor off the back of a hip injury was rectified when she captained a depleted Southern Vipers side against Sunrisers at Chelmsford where she scored 84, and followed it up with 49 against Thunder at Southport.

Playing for Welsh Fire in the 2023 Hundred, she featured five times for the Cardiff-based side, and came back to the Vipers as a power hitter.

In her last five innings of the year, she passed 50 three times, including an unbeaten 57 as she hit the winning runs against The Blaze in the RHFT final at Northampton, as she had done two years prior against the Diamonds at the same ground.
