Profile

Big things were expected of Erin Osborne when she finished her debut WNCL season as the leading wicket-taker.

Fortunately for Australian fans, the off-spinner didn’t disappoint, and has gone on to forge a wonderful career thus far.

The 2008/09 season saw Osborne pick up 15 wickets at an economy of just 2.47. She was a dominant figure for the Lend Lease Breakers, with hauls of 3/20 and 3/28 the highlight.

Osborne was instantly rewarded with a surprise call-up to the Australian team for the 2009 World Cup in Sydney.

For several years Osborne was the third spinner in the Australian team behind fellow offie Lisa Sthalekar and left-arm orthodox Shelley Nitschke, however, Nitschke’s retirement in 2012 saw the Tamworth junior step up into a more senior role.

She famously bowled the last over in the 2012 World T20 Final, holding her nerve to stave off the fast finishing English while the 50 over World Cup in India was one of her best International tournaments to date.

She started by picking up a ridiculous 3/9 from 10 overs against Sri Lanka and claimed the crucial last wicket in a narrow win over England. This was followed up with 2/16 and 2/26 against the West Indies.

Osborne was also one of Australia’s leading bowlers during the 2013 Ashes series in England, kicking off the campaign with a brilliant 4-67 off 37 overs in her Test debut.  

At the domestic level, Osborne has taken 33 wickets from 39 WT20 matches and 45 WNCL scalps from 36 games.

This will be a big summer for her as she takes the mantle of the number one spin bowler in the State following the retirement of Lisa Sthalekar, while she’s also keen to show off more of her ability with the bat.
