Bio

Alex Blackwell is the most experienced player in the Australian team, having made her international debut in 2003 and built a career around her powerful and precise stroke play.

Blackwell is no stranger to success; she captained the Australia 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 and 2014. 

She also has two ICC Women’s World Cup trophies to her name, having helped the national team win in 2005 and 2013.

She has long excelled at domestic level for the NSW Lend Lease Breakers in the Women’s National Cricket League and has captained the side to numerous domestic titles. 

In 2012-13 the team became the first to win both the T20 and 50-over competitions in the same season, a feat they replicated in 2014-15.

Blackwell became the first Australian woman to play 200 games for her country during the their triumphant Ashes series in England in 2015.
