The medium-pacer was the hero of the World Cup final on home soil at Lord's. She claimed six for 46, the best figures in a final, to turn the match on its head with India needing just 38 from 44 balls with seven wickets in hand.

Shrubsole, 25, who inherited her love of Pompey from her father Ian, was guest of honour at Fratton Park for the match against Rotherham United in September.

Boxer Anthony Joshua is favourite for the award. Our video shows the complete shortlist line-up.
