Bio

Megan Schutt’s rise from club cricketer to international star has been described by many as meteoric.

The athletic pace bowler made her domestic debut for the SA Scorpions in the 2009-10 Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) season and it didn’t take long for Schutt to catch the eye of national selectors after making the most of her opportunities for the Commonwealth Bank Shooting Stars.

Schutt made her international debut for the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars in the Rose Bowl Series against New Zealand in late 2012, her efforts seeing her earn a place in the team’s line-up for the ICC Women’s World Cup in India in 2013. 

Despite only being new to the international scene, Schutt went on to claim the scalps of international superstars Charlotte Edwards, Sarah Taylor, Amy Satterthwaite and Sophie Devine. 

In the final she snared two key wickets, which pushed her total for the tournament to 15. Schutt finished the event as the leading wicket-taker, securing her place in the Team of the Tour.

Schutt was also a crucial part of the Southern Stars attack in the 2015 Ashes against England, helping Australia win the series on English soil for the first time since 2001.

She has signed with the Adelaide Strikers in the WBBL.
