A talented badminton player who has represented New Zealand at age group level, Felicity Leydon-Davis is in high demand.
Leydon-Davis possesses talent in a number of sports, but luckily for the White Ferns, she's chosen cricket as her priority for the time being.
Born in 1994, Leydon-Davis is still exceptionally young, but has already made a name for herself on the domestic scene with the Northern Spirit. Predominantly a fast bowler, she finished as the seventh leading wicket-taker in the 2013-14 Women's One Day competition, while also proving handy with the bat and extremely athletic in the field. Her obvious talent was not missed by the selectors and she was sub-sequentially picked for the White Ferns that summer.
Leydon-Davis began her international career with a hiss and a roar, claiming a five-wicket-bag against the West Indies in her ODI debut in Christchurch. It was the best figures for a White Ferns player against the Caribbean side, taking the accolade from Holly Huddleston who had achieved the feat in the match prior.
She played in the ICC World Twenty20 side that summer, putting in solid performances throughout. Unfortunately, the White Ferns were to be knocked out in the group stages, despite only losing the single match.
The way she's going, there's little doubt that Leydon-Davis will have plenty more opportunities to compete at world tournaments in the future.
