It has to be noted that Harris has played for Brisbane Heat in three seasons as part of the Women’s Big Bash League. However, her highest point for the franchise came when she got the winning four in the final of WBBL in the 2018-19 season. She got her first appearance for Queensland in the 2016-17 season. Kimmince has played 16 one day internationals for the Australian side. In these outings, she got a total of 79 runs and got 14 wickets.
In T20Is, she has played for Aussies in 42 matches and amassed 162 runs. She got 39 wickets as well. Moreover, she was listed as one of the members who toured England for 2019 women’s Ashes. Interestingly, it was in her second One-day International match that she got her first five-wicket haul. She was a member of the Aussie world cup winning side in the recent T20 world cup.
It is fascinating for fans to note that Kimmince and Harris are one of many same-sex couples in the current women’s cricket scene. Lea Tahuhu and Amy Sattherwaite are from the neighborhoods of the new couple. South African side has Dane van Niekerk and Marizanne Kapp. Australia itself has many same-sex couples. Megan Schutt and Jess Holyoake along with Jess Jonassen and Sarah Wearn are some of the known names of the game.
It is incredible to find that women are breaking, not only, the taboos on the field but off-field as well.
