Born on January 15th 1993 in Adelaide, South Australia, current Test, ODI and T20I cricketer, Megan Schutt is a medium pace swing bowler.
“Shooter” made her debut for South Australia in the Australian Women’s Twenty20 Cup in 2009/10 and her debut in the Women’s National Cricket League in the same season under the captaincy of ICC Hall of Fame inductee, Karen Rolton.
Good returns for South Australia sees Megan selected for Australia in Jodie Fields’ team against New Zealand in an ODI in December 2012, opening the bowling with young gun, Ellyse Perry.
Two months and two matches later Shooter is playing in a World Cup. In the final against West Indies she took 2-38 as Australia cruised to victory by 114 runs. She has played in one more World Cup where Australia were defeated by India in the semi-final in 2017.
Megan made her Test debut against England in August 2013 and since then has played in three more Tests against the same opposition. She has taken nine wickets at 20.11 with a best of 4-26.
Perhaps Shooter’s best format however is T20. She has taken 96 wickets at an average of 15.35, a best of 4-16 and a wicket every 15 deliveries.Embed from Getty Images
