Profile

As vice-captain of the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars, Alex Blackwell is one of the more experienced players in the team, having made her national debut in 2003. Blackwell is a vital member of the team’s batting line-up with her powerful and precise stroke play.

In 2006 Blackwell and her twin sister Kate made cricketing history when they became the first set of identical twins to play cricket for Australia.

Blackwell is no stranger to success; she captained the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars to the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 in 2010 and was a member of the team that won that same title in Sri Lanka in 2012. She also has two ICC Women’s World Cup trophies to her name, having helped the national team to the titles in 2005 and 2013.

She has long excelled at domestic level for New South Wales’ women’s team in the Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL). As captain of the Breakers she has led her side to numerous domestic titles and in 2012-13 the team became the first to win both the T20 and 50-over competitions in the same season.
