Holly Ferling - Cricket

In her debut domestic season (2012-13) Ferling earned a place in the Women’s National Cricket League 50-over Team of the Year. She was then named in the squad for the ICC Women’s World Cup in India in 2013.

As a 17-year-old she broke onto the international scene, taking 2-10 from three overs in Australia’s opening match. Ferling was one of the fastest bowlers, clocked at 110-120km/h and went on to take nine wickets and was named 12th man in the Team of the Tournament. Ferling made her Test debut against England in the 2013 Women’s Ashes Series. In that same series she also went on to play her international T20 debut. She dismissed the English captain Charlotte Edwards 3 times.

When considering the stature of an athlete or for that matter any person, I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill. They are that the person conducts his of her life with dignity, with integrity, courage, and perhaps most of all, with modesty. These virtues are totally compatible with pride, ambition, and competitiveness.
