Aussies top women voice their views on cricket as career option for females

This is what Australia’s Women players had to say to a 12-year old girl who thinks cricket to be a boys’ game –

  • Ellyse Perry – That’s so totally changed in the last little bit. You only have to turn the television on now, especially during the WBBL to see that it’s a genuine career option for young girls and females.
  • Megan Schutt – I don’t think there is such thing as a boys and girls game anymore and I think that’s the direction that sport is heading in as a whole, really. There is no girls’ and boys’ sport, it’s for everyone.
  • Meg Lanning – I would encourage her to get out and give it a go. Whether that is in a boys’ team or a girls’ team, you can do either now, which is great.
  • Elyse Villani – There are so many amazing women out there playing sport and playing cricket. You don’t have to look too far to realize that it’s actually a game to be enjoyed by both boys and girls.
  • Delissa Kimmince – For someone like myself, I was always trying to beat the boys and be better than the boys and I think nothing these days is just a males’ game. If you want to somewhere follow your heart and chase your dreams.
