The boys were really pumped, having beaten the Number 1 ranked team for ODI and arch-rival, India
And now the Women’s Cricket Team is all set to fight for the Trophy in England, with their first match on June 25
While our women are all set to fight for the trophy, here’s another team that’s been making rounds of social media for their arrival in London
This is the Australian Women’s National Cricket Team and they’re certainly getting a lot of attention and here’s why
The current captain of the Australian Team, at 25 years old has been given the title of “Megastar” for her remarkable achievement in the game. In only her second game as a professional cricketer, Meg became the youngest Australian – man or woman – to score an international century, at the age of 18.
Alex is a veteran player in the Australian squad. She’s currently serving as the Vice Captain of the Australian cricket team. And off of 116 ODIs she has scored 2697 runs.
28 year old Nicole has played 30 ODIs for Australia. She has scored an aggregate of 1173 runs in her performance for the ODIs
Kristen has taken 28 wickets off of 22 matches in One Day International format of the game.
20 year old Ashleigh is a right-hand batsmen and a right-arm offbreak bowler. She debuted for the Australian team, against New Zealand, on March 2, 2017. Out of the 2 ODIs that she’s played she got 3 wickets.
As a junior cricketer, Haynes, used to play with girls three years her senior. She plays primarily as a batsmen and off the 21 matches she’s played she’s scored more than 400 runs.
Since making her international cricket debut in February 2010, Alyssa has played 32 ODIs. She has aggregated 281 runs, so far and serves as the wicket keeper of the Aussie women’s team.
Jess is an all-rounder, a left-hand batsmen and a slow left-arm orthodox bowler. Off of her 43 ODIs she’s amassed 372 runs and 57 videos.
Left-handed batsmen Beth Mooney debuted on February 20, 2016. Since then she’s played 9 ODIs and scored more than 300 runs.
19 year old Belinda is going to be making her debut in the upcoming Women’s World Cup in England.
Elyse made her ODI debut for Australia, against England on January 19, 2014. In her 20 match ODI career, so far, she’s scored 390 runs and 2 wickets.
In her debut year, Megan was called by ESPNcricinfo as The Player To Watch Out For. During the 2013 Cricket World Cup she claimed the most wickets of any player in the tournament.
This 20 year old bowler made her debut for Australia against South Africa on November 27, 2016. Off her 5 ODI matches she’s scored 8 wickets and 13 runs.
She made her debut for, both, the Australian cricket and the Australian women’s national soccer team at the age of 16 and she continues to play both the sports professionally. Teams in both sports want her and she concedes that one day she will have to make a choice but for now she’s playing them both and being a total badass at them.
