Elwiss is in a relationship with Carly Telford, who is the goalkeeper for the England women’s national football team.
Georgia Elwiss, an allrounder cricketer, grew up in Wolverhampton and initially played cricket for Staffordshire. Georgia later moved to Sussex at the beginning of the 2011 season. In 2010 and 2011, she was selected as an MCC Young Cricketer.
During the 2011 Women’s Quadrangular Series, Georgia was called up as a replacement bowler for the injured Jenny Gunn but did not get a chance to play. But, Elwiss was included in the squad for the South Africa tour that same year and made her international debut in October 2011.
In 2012, Georgia was chosen again for the series against India, and her consistent performances impressed the selectors. During the series, Georgia took six wickets at an economy rate of 1.93, including an impressive 3 for 17 in the final One-Day International (ODI), which earned her the Player of the Series award.
As a result, Elwiss was called up for the World Cup in early 2013, but she only played in one match as England had a disappointing tournament, finishing in third place despite being the defending champions.
Elwiss was unable to participate in the 2013 Ashes series due to a back injury. Elwiss also missed the series against India in 2014 due to a broken hand. However, by the summer of 2015, she had worked her way back into contention.
Elwiss made her Test debut against Australia at Canterbury, filling in for the injured Jenny Gunn once again. In a batting display where England struggled, her fluent and free-flowing innings of 46 in the second innings stood out. Elwiss quickly followed it up with her first international fifty during the tour in South Africa in February 2016, contributing to England’s series-clinching five-wicket victory.
Elwiss represented England in the 2016 World Twenty20 and was appointed as the captain of Loughborough Lightning in the inaugural Kia Super League. Additionally, in the absence of Sarah Taylor, Elwiss took over as the captain of Sussex for the 2016 season.
Although Elwiss was part of the squad, she did not get a chance to play in England’s victorious 2017 World Cup campaign. As an allrounder, Elwiss often found herself in and out of squads, struggling to establish a long-term place with her batting or bowling talents. She is considered well-suited for Test cricket, but the limited number of Test fixtures negatively affected her opportunities.
