Holly Ferling is one of the rising stars of international women’s cricket, having exceeded expectations in her short career to date.

On the back of standout performances at club level, Ferling was added to Queensland Fire’s rookie list at the age of 14.

Following an impressive performance at the Under-18 National Championships in 2011-12, Ferling became the first female player to win the Ken Mackay Trophy for the Queensland Junior Cricketer of the Year. Her efforts also saw her called into the Commonwealth Bank Shooting Stars for their tour of New Zealand in early 2012.

In her debut domestic season Ferling earned a place in the Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) 50-over Team of the Year and she was selected in the squad for the ICC Women’s World Cup in India in 2013.

Aged 17, Ferling announced herself on the international stage, taking 2-10 from three overs in Australia’s opening match of the tournament. She went on to take nine wickets during the World Cup and was named 12th man in the Team of the Tournament.

Ferling helped the Southern Stars reclaim the Ashes from England in mid-2015 and will don the teal of the Brisbane Heat in WBBL|01.

Outside of cricket Holly is studying to become a PE Teacher at University and can also be found writing blogs and columns for Fairfax Media, Queensland Cricket and the Heat.
