Freya Davies


Freya Ruth Davies was born in Chichester, West Sussex on 27th October 1995 and is a right arm fast-medium bowler and right handed batter.

Freya joined Southern Vipers in late 2023 on a one-year contract having made the move back to her native region from Southern Vipers.

She made her debut for Sussex in August 2010, aged just 14, and took her first wicket for the county in her third match.

Davies has played 84 times for Sussex, most recently in June 2019, and has taken 84 wickets at an average of 19.46 for the county, with a best of 6-10 coming against Derbyshire in 2018.

She made her international debut against Sri Lanka in March 2019 where she took 2-28 as England skittled the home side for just 94.

In December the same year, she made her ODI debut on England’s tour of Malaysia against Pakistan.

Davies has, to date, featured 35 times for the Three Lions and has taken 33 wickets, with a best of 4-23 coming in an IT20 against New Zealand in March 2021.

At regional level, Davies played for Western Storm in the KSL before moving to South East Stars when the regional hubs were put in place.

She took 37 wickets in 36 matches for the Storm with a best of 4-18 coming against the Vipers in 2019, and picked up six Charlotte Edwards Cup and 18 Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy wickets in 27 matches for South East Stars.

Davies started her Hundred career at London Spirit, picking up five wickets in both the 2021 and 2022 seasons before a move to a revamped Welsh Fire saw her pick up seven wickets with a best of 2-19 against Trent Rockets.

She made her Vipers debut against her former side, South East Stars, but had to wait until her third game to pick up her first wicket in orange and black, as she ended on 2-51 against Western Storm at Bristol to help the Vipers to a thrilling four-run win.

Davies then claimed her best figures in the Charlotte Edwards Cup when she took 3-22 against Sunrisers at Arundel Castle.
