Player Story

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 season and it didn’t take long for Schutt to catch the eye of national selectors after making the most of her opportunities for Australia A Women.

Schutt made her international debut for Australia 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 the following year.

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.

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

Schutt was an integral part of the Australian Women's cricket team in 2018, which went all the way to win a fourth ICC World T20 championship. Ahead of the tournament, she was named as one of the players to watch.

Schutt continued to dominate 2018, claiming an extraordinary hat-trick against India in a WT20I game, followed by a repeat of the feat in a WODI against West Indies the following year. In doing so, she became the first woman in international cricket to claim two hat-tricks.

Her list of accolades has since continued to grow, firming her reputation as one of the game's best white-ball bowlers with key roles in the 2018 and 2020 T20 World Cup wins, and the 2022 World Cup in New Zealand; she is also just the second player to take 100 T20I wickets for Australia. 

In the WBBL, she plays for the Adelaide Strikers.
