In 2020, Capsey played for South East Stars in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy.

International career

Capsey was named as part of the England Academy for the 2019/20 intake.[41] In December 2021, Capsey was named in England's A squad for their tour to Australia, with the matches being played alongside the Women's Ashes.[42] She played five matches on the tour, including top-scoring with 44 from 31 deliveries in the first T20.[43][44][45]

In July 2022, she was named in England's squad for their Women's Twenty20 International (WT20I) series against South Africa and for the cricket tournament at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England.[46] Capsey made her WT20I debut on 23 July 2022, during England's home series against South Africa, where she did not bat but took her maiden international wicket, dismissing Lara Goodall.[47] She made 25 from 17 balls in the final match of the series.[48] At the Commonwealth Games, Capsey was England's highest run-scorer, with 135 runs in five matches.[49] She made her maiden international half-century in England's second match of the tournament, against South Africa, as well as top-scoring in England's victories over Sri Lanka and New Zealand.[50][51][52] Capsey played much of the Commonwealth Games tournament with a black eye, sustained in the warm-up before England's opening match, which partially hindered her vision.[53] Capsey played all six matches of England's series against India in September 2022, including making her One Day International debut on 18 September 2022.[54][55][56] In November 2022, Capsey was awarded with her first England central contract.[57]

In December 2022, Capsey was part of England's squad to tour the West Indies, but a broken collarbone in the field in the first ODI, ruled her out of the rest of the tour.[58][59] In January 2023, despite her injury, Capsey was named in England's squad for the 2023 ICC Women's T20 World Cup, with the hope that she would be fit in time for the tournament.[60] She went on to play all five of England's matches at the tournament, scoring 73 runs including one half-century, in a Player of the Match performance against Ireland.[61][62]

She played six matches in the 2023 Women's Ashes series, including a Player of the Match performance in the 3rd T20I, scoring 46 from 23 deliveries.[63][64][65] Later that summer, she was named in England's squad for their series against Sri Lanka, playing all six matches, scoring one half-century and taking three wickets.[66][67][68] She was ever-present during the T20I series of England's tour of India in December 2023, scoring 32 runs.[69]
