So, they challenged Lewis to have a go at cricket, and she took it on in good spirit.

"I'm very excited to be involved in this campaign, and with my background in sport I have a huge passion for nutrition and exercise," she said.

"I have been presented with the challenging opportunity of learning women's cricket…something I only played in the garden as a child, so this could be a very interesting experience for myself and somewhat comical for those watching!"

Judge for yourself as she takes on the challenge, beginning with the basics, moving on to one-on-one training and finally her first match.

She was supported by the England Women's team and their coaching team, led by Mark Robinson, at Loughborough University.
