Bio

Melbourne-born Julie Hunter was a regular member of Victoria’s underage representative teams, having a particularly strong impact at the Under-17 tournament in 2000, despite only being 15-years-old. 

Hunter’s economical bowling saw her progress through the ranks to the Australian Under-19 team and she made her domestic debut for Victoria in the 2003-04 season. 

Her performances in her first Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) season saw her rewarded with a call-up to the Australian Under-23 side to play against Sri Lanka in 2004.

After six years playing domestic cricket, persistence finally paid off for Hunter in 2010 when she made her debut for the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars in the Rose Bowl Series against New Zealand at the Junction Oval in Melbourne.

Hunter retained her spot in the national squad that took out the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 in the West Indies.

Two years later Hunter played a key role in Australia’s defence of the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka, finishing the tournament as the leading wicket-taker with 11 scalps and 2-36 in the final against England.

The pace bowler’s economical overs helped her side to another World Cup six months later in India in 2013.

Hunter moved to Tasmania for the 2015-16 WNCL season, also signing with the Hobart Hurricanes in the WBBL.
