Bio

Born in Toowoomba, Fields has come a long way in her cricketing career. She grew up in Queensland playing boy’s and men’s cricket at school before playing women’s cricket at University. She made her debut for her state team, the Queensland Fire, in 2000 and has captained the side since the beginning of the 2008-09 season.

Her international debut for Australia came in a Test against India in Adelaide in February 2006. She was appointed captain of the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars in 2009, replacing the renowned Karen Rolton. In doing so she became the first Queensland woman to captain Australia.

Her first game as captain of the Australian national women’s side was a T20I against England in Derby on 25 June 2009.

In her first Test match as captain against England in July 2009, she made her maiden Test century with a captain’s knock of 139, rescuing her team which had slumped to 5-28. The match was eventually drawn after rain on the last day.

It hasn’t been all smooth sailing for Fields. She tore her hamstring off the bone while batting in a domestic match in 2010. She worked hard in her rehabilitation, with her goal being to return for the 2010 ICC Women’s World Twenty20 in the West Indies. In a cruel twist of fate, she slipped on wet concrete while recovering from the injury. She was forced to watch the Aussies go on the win the tournament from the couch, which only spurred her on to her courageous comeback in January 2011.

Fields captained the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars to a second successive ICC Women’s World Twenty20 title in 2012 in Sri Lanka, defying the odds to defeat the raging hot favourites England in the final. She led the side to the ICC Women’s World Cup in India less than six months later in February 2013.
