Bio

Jemma Barsby is a talented allrounder who has impressed many during her time at the elite level, despite her young age.

The daughter of former Queensland batsman and coach Trevor Barsby made her Women’s National Cricket League debut for Queensland in the 2010-11 season at the age of 15. 
 
Barsby excelled at national underage championships from a young age. Among her achievements she won the Betty Wilson trophy as the standout player at the Under-18 national titles in 2012, at which she made a remarkable 153 in a 50-over match against Tasmania.

Following standout performances at domestic level she was called into the Australia A Women's side in 2012 for their tour of New Zealand.
 
At a subsequent Australia A Women's tour to New Zealand later that year, Barsby shared the Player of the Series award.

She won Queensland Fire’s Youth Player of the Year award in 2010-11 and 2011-12 and in the 2011-12 season at the age of 16, she finished the WT20 competition as her side’s leading wicket-taker. 

Barsby travelled to Dubai with the Australia A Women's in 2015 to take on England Academy, and will don the teal of the Brisbane Heat in the WBBL.

She also has a rare talent of being able to bowl with both hands.
