Piepa Cleary (Perth Scorchers)
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).
