Beth Mooney (T20 cricket) was the tournament’s leading run-scorer (179) at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, with her 61 in the final against India helping secure the gold medal for Australia.
Beth’s performance at the top of the order has also guided Australia to multiple T20 and one-day international World Cup wins as well as Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) titles with the Brisbane Heat and Perth Scorchers.
Beth was born in Shepparton and moved to Hervey Bay in Queensland with her family when she was 10 where she was initially identified as a wicketkeeping prospect at local zone trials. She made her debut for the Queensland Fire a few days after turning 16 in 2009/10 but didn’t make her international debut until January 2016. In 2017, she made her maiden international centuries – in a one-day international against New Zealand and a T20 against England – and has been a mainstay of the Australian team ever since.
Beth is the most prolific batter in the WBBL, having scored over 4000 runs for the Perth Scorchers and Brisbane Heat. She took the Heat to back-to-back titles in 2018/19 and 2019/20, winning the Player of the Match in both finals, before moving to Perth and helping the Scorchers to their first title in 2021/22.
