It's hard to know how to start typing this short tribute. That's not
because Jen has played only a handful of matches or had a very short
career - in fact it's quite the opposite and maybe the stats will show
both her longevity and her success.
But I can show a few instances from maybe before, dear reader,
you started playing or watching this sport.
Jenny Gunn bowling in 2001
A characteristic image of Jen bowling during the days of the Super 4s
...and bowling for England in the same year
However as stats below show Jen knows how to wield a hefty willow
Representing Notts in county cricket (2014 above) and latterly
Warwickshire (below in 2016)
Let's take a look at the numbers. She is
(at least according to Twitter) the only England player to make 1,000
runs and take 100 wickets for her country. She has two world cup
winners medals and one world T20 winners medals. She has also taken
part in 5 Ashes winning campaigns.
Can you remember the days before Jen
appeared in County and International cricket? I can, but only just!!!
