Game Changers - Heather Knight

England Women's cricketer Heather Knight dropped into the Game Changers studio on Saturday morning to talk about winning the Ashes.

England started slowly against Australia this summer, drawing the Test match and losing the first one-day international, but quickly regrouped win the series 12-4 on points.

Charlotte Edwards' team got the better of their opponents in two ODIs and three Twenty20 matches to regain the Ashes after losing them Down Under in 2010-11, and Knight says victory was a great feeling.

"It was special," said the batter.

"We had a really hard winter and lost both World Cups to Australia so it was really pleasing the way we bounced back.

"It was really good that young girls could see that on the telly and can now take up the sport."

Knight also revealed how she gets on with her England team-mates and what her batting style is like.

"It is like a family away from home and we really enjoy each other's company and success," said Knight.

And on her batting, she added: "I am more of a touch player but have been known to hit a few sixes in my time."
