Australian female cricketers journey from devastation to dominance

Losing the World Cup semi-final against India Women two years ago proved to be turning point for the Southern Stars as they reformed themselves to achieve a remarkable success in the last two years. So much so, that the current world champions, England Women were nowhere near the Aussies’ level of play in the recently concluded Women’s Ashes.

Australia Women’s current squad still has 10 players who were the part of World Cup squad of 2017 and joined by some young talents like Sophie Molineux and Tayla Vlaeminck. For the sake of records, the Southern Stars have lost just five games out of 39 across all the formats after the World Cup exit and were defeated just twice since the beginning of 2018.

The wise investments being made for women’s cricket by the organizers and proper channelisation of resources and guidance among players are showing results now. All-rounder Jess Jonassen said, “I think there’s just a lot more clarity around individuals’ roles in the side and that allows players to have freedom in how they go about their business.”
