"This will enable the brand to continue developing its global reputation for high performance athletic products with the New Balance range building a strong reputation in cricket footwear and cricket equipment."
Edwards, who made her international debut in 1995 and took over the England captaincy in 2006, added: "I am delighted to join New Balance’s team of athletes and I am looking forward to being able to support the brand’s global cricketing ambitions.

"New Balance provides the highest quality cricket kit and performance footwear.

"I am certainly looking forward to using them in matches and in training and also helping with the future development of the New Balance range at the highest levels of the game."
