THE AUSSIE STAR
Megan Schutt (Adelaide Strikers)
Bowler, right-arm medium-fast
At just 25 years old, Megan Schutt has already been representing Australia for six years. An opening strike bowler, she’s best known for her accuracy and swing. Captain of the South Australian 50-over team, Schutt has a mature head on her young shoulders, but also likes to have plenty of fun. She’s the queen of banter and boasts plenty of quirky tattoos including a flamingo on her foot. Schutt took the most wickets in last season’s Ashes series (18) and became the first Australian woman to claim an international T20 hat-trick against India in a tri-series tournament back in March.
