Darcie Brown

The youngest member of the cricket team in Birmingham and one of the quickest bowlers in the women’s game, Darcie Brown also boasts one of the best strike rates and economy rates of any bowler in the Women’s Big Bash League. 

The tearaway fast bowler, who first signed with the Adelaide Strikers when she was only 16, was born in Kapunda, a small town in South Australia’s Barossa Valley. She played a variety of sports, including basketball, cricket, netball, Australian football and tennis at representative level before eventually deciding on cricket. She moved to Adelaide in Year 11 on a netball scholarship with Henley High School and was also offered a place at the Adelaide Crows AFL Academy.

Brown made her T20 debut for Australia against New Zealand in March 2021 and was part of Australia’s squad that claimed the Women’s Cricket World Cup in New Zealand in 2022.

Brown says that one of her biggest challenges growing up was playing in glasses which slipped as she was bowling. She started using contacts in 2019.
