Bio

Lisa Sthalekar is a fully fledged Southern Stars legend. Born in India, she was adopted and brought to Australia as a baby where she was raised in Cherrybrook, in Sydney’s north west. One of the most accomplished Female cricketers in the World, she has been part of four World Cup winning teams across 50 over and T20 cricket, and she was part of the Australian teams which won the 2001 and 2011 Ashes.  She also captained Australia in three One Day Internationals against New Zealand during 2006. 

Since retiring from  all cricket after the 2013 ICC World Cup, Sthalekar has become one of the leading female  commentators and has covered Tests, ODIs, as well as the IPL and BBL. 

An accomplished Coach, Sthalekar has held many pathway coaching roles within Cricket NSW and still has close ties to many of the members of the Sixers squad. An inventive right-hand batsman, Lisa averaged over 30 in her 125 game ODI career and captured nearly 150 wickets with her off-spin.

She still holds the records for the most WNCL games by any player and the most wickets taken in the competition. 

Away from cricket Sthalekar enjoys cooking and is famous amongst her friends for her guacamole.
