Beth Mooney boasts credentials that place her amongst the greatest female cricketers Australia has ever seen. Since her professional debut for the Queensland Fire in 2009 at the young age of 16, Beth has represented her state and country on countless occasions, currently playing for the Brisbane Heat and Australian women’s teams.
Commonly referred to as a batsman-wicketkeeper rather than a typical wicketkeeper-batsman, Beth made her 2012-13 domestic level campaign a breakthrough season, averaging 44 runs and recording four half-centuries. In December 2017, Beth won two highly coveted achievements in the inaugural ICC T20I Player of the Year and the Emerging Player of the Year and was subsequently awarded contracts from Cricket Australia through to the 2019-20 season.
Beth was most recently named in Australia’s 2019 Ashes squad, where they defeated England for the third time in three years. Most recently, Beth accumulated 113 runs off 54 balls in an international T20 match against Sri Lanka, securing the sixth-fastest ton on the international stage ever.
Off the field, Beth continues to be a massive advocate for greater opportunity in women’s sports, both for cricket and other sports. Beth endeavours to see increased participation of women in modern sports culture, along with greater local and international community support of women’s competitions, to help heighten on and off-field opportunity for all female athletes.
Beth’s capabilities as an athlete and off-field ambassador have no limits.
