A right-hand batter and off-break bowler, Mary-Anne first made her presence felt in Under 19’s in 2008/09, first for Centrals in the Zimbabwe Women’s Inter-Provincial Tournament, and then in the Zimbabwe Under 19s in the Girls National Under-19 Week in 2009/10.

Mary-Anne was selected in the Zimbabwe senior team in 2012/13 and played in the ICC Africa Women’s World T20 Qualifiers in 2012/13, however it would not be until 2018 that Zimbabwe would achieve full ICC T20 International status.
