List of Australian Women’s Cricket Players
Australia’s women’s cricket team, under the auspices of the International Cricket Council (ICC), has a storied history dating back to 1934. They played their inaugural Test match against England in the 1934–35 season and continue to compete with England biennially for the Women’s Ashes.
Over the years, the team has developed rich rivalries, most notably with New Zealand, as well as newer competitive relationships with India and the West Indies, especially in limited-overs cricket. Australia has excelled in the 50-over format, boasting an impressive record with seven Women’s Cricket World Cup titles to their name, clinching victory in 1978, 1982, 1988, 1997, 2005, 2013, and most recently in 2022. Their dominance extends to Twenty20 cricket, where they have secured victory in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in 2010, 2012, 2014, 2018, 2020, and again in 2023.
In 2003, the Women’s Cricket Australia (WCA) and the Australian Cricket Board (ACB) merged to create a unified governing body, known as Cricket Australia (CA), which continues to oversee the women’s cricket team. CA’s primary goal is to make cricket the premier sport for women and girls in Australia. The performance and visibility of the national team, which benefits from increasingly professional domestic structures like the Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) and the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL), are pivotal in achieving this ambition.
A survey conducted by TrueNorth Research in April 2020 highlighted the profound emotional connection between the national women’s cricket team and Australian sports fans, reinforcing the team’s significance in the country’s sporting landscape.
