Leading sports nutrition provider Nutrition X have partnered with England internationals Heather Knight and Laura Marsh to help them prepare for a busy year of international cricket.

With ICC Women's Championship games against New Zealand followed by an Ashes campaign and a tour of South Africa, Knight and Marsh will be glad of the extra support from Nutrition X.

Both players were recently named in England's squad to tour New Zealand in February with Knight now England's vice-captain and Marsh making a return to the squad following a shoulder injury.

"I am delighted to be joining up with Nutrition X for 2015," Knight said.

"With such a big year of cricket ahead, it felt a natural fit for me to partner with one of the market’s leading supplement providers."

And off-spinner Marsh, who is making her return to the international game after last playing in 2013, added: "Since my shoulder operation I have undergone a lengthy period of rehabilitation.

"To be an ambassador for Nutrition X, and have access to their fantastic range of supplement products during 2015 will allow me to fully optimise my training, and preparations to play successfully in an exciting year ahead for England women."

Nutrition X are fast becoming the sports nutritionists of choice for elite athletes and are recognised for their work with leading nutritionists and sports scientists.

This research and development has enabled Nutrition X to produce fully tested products which are scientifically proven to deliver results.

"We are really excited to be working alongside and supporting both Heather and Laura, especially with the Women’s Ashes being played in England again this summer," James Markey, Nutrition X Managing Director, said.

"We wish them every success for the New Zealand tour and look forward to working with both players as they further their careers."
