Chloe Tryon

Born on January 25th 1994 in Kingsway, Durban, Natal, current Test, ODI and T20I player for South Africa, Chloe Tryon is a left handed allrounder.

Chloe began her career with KwaZulu-Natal in 2006/7 under the captaincy of  Trisha Chetty. The twelve year old took a catch and bowled seven overs.

At sixteen years of age Chloe is opening the bowling for South Africa in the T20 World Cup of 2010 in the Caribbean. She became the first woman to take a wicket with her first ball in T20 Internationals when she dismissed Stafanie Taylor.

Since that memorable start Chloe has become a key player for South Africa. Her T20 career has also extended into the WBBL where she stars for the Hobart Hurricanes.

Tryon’s ODI career began in 2011 and includes three World Cup appearances. Her top score of 92 came in a partnership with Sune Luus of 142 – the highest sixth wicket partnership in women’s ODI history.

To tick all the boxes, Chloe has appeared in one Test match – one of very few South African women to do so. She managed a score of 30 not out and also took a wicket.
