Profile

Alex Blackwell is one of the most experienced players in Australian women’s cricket after making her State debut back in September 2001 and her International debut just two years later.

Blackwell is coming off a history making summer. She played her 100th WNCL match for NSW and became just one of a handful of players to score over 3000 WNCL runs. She also hit two centuries during 2012/13 to move into outright second on the list of most tons scored in the history of the WNCL.

She was the second leading run scorer in 50 over cricket (464 at 92.80) and the leading run maker in the WT20 (377 at 53.86). She won the Belinda Clark Medal as the Lend Lease Breakers Player of the Year, and skippered the team to success in both the WNCL and WT20, making them the first team to win both competitions in the same year.

Blackwell is also one of only three players to have been part of all of NSW’s eight consecutive WNCL winning teams.

Alex Blackwell’s record on the International stage is no less impressive. Since her debut in 2003 she has been part of two World Cup and World T20 victories, and two Ashes winning teams. She was also captain of the Australian team which won the Ashes and World T20 in 2010/11, while the World Cup Final in February 2013 was her 100th One Day International appearance.

Blackwell’s strength as a batter is her versatility. She started her career in the middle order before spending several seasons as an opener. More recently she’s batted anywhere between number three and number six for Australia.

Alex and her sister Kate are the first identical twins to represent Australia in cricket. This season, for the first time in their careers, they will go head-to-head with Kate coming out of retirement to play for Western Australia in the WNCL.
