ENGLAND reached the Cricket World Cup final for the first time since 1992 after smashing old enemy Australia at Edgbaston.

But as they say, behind great man there's a great woman – and these cricket Wags could even give the football wags a run for their money.

The England cricket team whacked their way to a first Cricket World Cup final since 1992 on Thursday afternoon.

And from a PR for luxury goods brand Burberry to a Pilates instructor, and even stay-at-home mums, no doubt the other halves will be out in force to help their keep their hubbies on track ahead of the crunch clash against New Zealand.

And with the sportsmen looking at pocketing a massive £3.1 million if they win the tournament, there's plenty of reason for their wives to be cheering them on.

Here, the Sun Online looks at some of the women behind England's top cricketers.

Louise Buttler

Pilates instructor Louise married international cricketer Jos Buttler, 28, in October 2017, in a romantic ceremony in Somerset before honeymooning in Positano, Italy.

Together, the pair have daughter Georgia Rose, who was born on April 26 this year – and already the baby has travelled up and down the country to watch her dad play.

Running her own business, LB Pilates, in Clapham, London, Louise keeps as fit as her husband while teaching Pilates one on one.

Having holidayed in Australia, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Canada and the Algarve – just to name a few – she certainly keeps herself well travelled alongside Jos.


Carrie Root

Mum-of-one Carrie started dating England captain Joe Root, 28, in 2014, and four years later in December 2018 the pair were married at a glamorous church ceremony in Sheffield.

The 30-year-old and her cricketing hubby have since travelled all over the globe together to luxury destinations including the Caribbean, New York, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Paris.

And they don't jet set alone, as the couple share a son, Alfie, 2, who is often pictured with the pair on Instagram during their travels.


Elle Winter-Roy

Wife of England batsman Jason Roy, 28, Elle Winter married her sporting sweetheart in France in 2017, at the lavish Chateau de Lartigolle mansion.

The loved-up pair welcomed baby Everly, their first child, this March – and the new mum has posted plenty of adorable snaps for fans to lap up.

Travelling to faraway destinations including Dubai, Capri and Mexico, the mum-of-one always ensures her social media is up to date and on point for her dedicated followers.

And when she's not at home looking after the baby, Elle's sure to be spotted sunbathing with the other WAGs in between other half Jason's matches.


Clare Ratcliffe

Mum-of-two Clare Ratcliffe, 29, finally married her childhood sweetheart Ben Stokes, 28, England vice-captain, in 2017 after being together since their teens.

Together they share two children – son Layton, 7, who was born when the cricketer was just 21 years old in 2012, and daughter Libby, 4.

The family of four live in a lavish five-bedroom house in Durham, which is thought to be worth more than the £1.7 million they paid as they bought it on 'sale'.

Family woman Claire pours most of her attention into her little ones, often posting pictures of them in school productions, playing sports and on the side lines of the cricket pitch supporting dad.


Tara Ridgway

Australian native Tara, 24, married Englan's limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan, 32, in November in a glamorous ceremony at the historic Babington House in Somerset.

The pair hooked up in 2010, when Tara was just 17, after they met in Adelaide, Australia, and have been together ever since, with Tara moving to England to be closer to her hubby.

But she's not all about the cricket, as Tara is often preoccupied with her job working as a PR for luxury fashion brand Burberry while Eoin is on tour.

And having previously worked for companies including Harrods and shoe designer Rupert Sanderson, she certainly has an eye for the finer things in life – often demonstrated by her high-end style.


Amie Woakes

Thirty-year-old Amie married her long term boyfriend Chris Woakes, 30, in 2017 in a grand church wedding attended by all their cricketing friends.

And since they've been jet setting across the globe, from Barbados to New Zealand, before settling down to welcome their first child, a baby girl, last year.

Amie prefers to keep herself to herself, and therefore her social media is relatively private – allowing husband Chris to take most of the attention.


Sophie Dawson

Mum-of-one Sophie married cricketer Liam Dawson, 29, in October 2017 after years of supporting him from the cricketing sidelines.

The couple now share a son, Ralphie, in July 2018 – and in celebration of their growing family, the cricket star and Sophie holidayed in Dubai for a glamorous Mother's Day celebration.

Sarah Wood

International cricket player Mark Wood, 29, married Sarah at the end of 2018 in their home county of Northumberland at the decadent Ellingham Hall.

Sarah often joins her other half on his tours, spotted in locations as far flung as Australia, and the pair took a trip to Paris in January to celebrate their honeymoon.


Emeleah Erb

American-born Emeleah Erb married Liam Plunkett, 34, in October 2018 – and while the newlywed is thought to often support Liam from the sideline, she keeps a low profile.

Both she and Liam have private social media profiles and prefer to keep out of the spotlight.
