Amanda-Jade Wellington (T20 cricket) was part of Australia’s 15-player squad at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games in 2022, however she missed selection for any of Australia’s five matches on the way to winning gold.
Amanda has represented Australia in all three forms of the game since 2016 but has been unlucky to miss more Aussie call-ups throughout her career. She made her one-day international debut against South Africa in 2016, claiming a wicket with her first ball in international cricket. Her T20 start came a few months later, while her sole Test appearance was against England in 2017.
Amanda was inspired by the late Shane Warne and taught herself how to bowl leg spin in her backyard. She began playing for the Port Adelaide Cricket Club and was named player of the tournament at the national under-15 championships in December 2011. Amanda was selected for her Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) debut in 2012 aged 15, the youngest cricketer – male or female – to play for South Australia at a senior level. She is now the Scorpions leading wicket-taker in the WNCL and had a Player-of-the-Match performance in leading her Adelaide Strikers to back-to-back Women’s Big Bash League glory in 2022-23 and 2023-24.
