The Kent batter scored an unbeaten 114 in the one-off Ashes Test in Sydney three-and-a-half years ago and will be hoping for more of the same in Canterbury.
Her three other Test innings have yielded only 41 runs in total, and the 24-year-old heads into the showdown at Canterbury off the back of consecutive knocks of 38 in the last two One Day Internationals.
Knight recorded the third-highest score for England in Women’s Ashes Test history when she scored 157 from 338 deliveries in the 2013 encounter at Wormsley.
England vice-captain Heather Knight could hold the key to England’s hopes of winning the only Test in the 2015 Women’s Ashes following her heroics against Australia two years ago.
With four points up for grabs for the winner, England can put themselves into a commanding position ahead of three Twenty20 Internationals later this month that complete the multi-format series.
