THE CHAR­AC­TER

Piepa Cleary (Perth Scorchers)

ABC Cricket - - WBBL -

Bowler, right-hand bat/ right-arm medium-fast

She’s a lar­rikin, and Piepa Cleary is not afraid to have an opin­ion or try to liven the mood at train­ing. A coun­try girl, orig­i­nally hail­ing from Tom Price, WA, Cleary’s fam­ily made the 16-hour move down to Perth ten years ago for cricket and school­ing. Her twin brother is also a pretty handy crick­eter and in her spare time you’ll find them at the nets – or fish­ing with their dad. Af­fec­tion­ately known as “Slug”, Cleary’s fan page on In­sta­gram is called “Slug Club”. Tak­ing 13 wick­ets for the Scorchers side last sum­mer, her best per­for­mance came against the Thun­der (3/19).
