Beth Mooney established herself as a familiar presence in the Australian cricket setup even before she made her international debut, often accompanying the team as the backup wicketkeeper behind Alyssa Healy. In recent times, her name resonates with multiple World Cup triumphs, securing the prestigious Belinda Clark Award, and being recognized as one of the premier batters in the world.
Her journey to international stardom began with breakthrough performances for Australia A and impressive domestic showings in 2015, which led to her selection as a specialist batter. This paved the way for her debut in the Australia national team during the 2015-16 T20 series against India. In 2017, Mooney underlined her batting prowess by notching her maiden Women’s One Day International century against New Zealand, subsequently making her Test debut against England the same year.
Mooney has firmly solidified her place at the top of Australia’s T20 batting order, significantly contributing to their victory in the 2018 T20 World Cup. Her crowning moment came in 2020 when she was named the Player of the Tournament as Australia clinched their fifth T20 World Cup title.
Beyond international success, Mooney has also played an integral role in the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL). She boasts two WBBL titles with the Brisbane Heat and continued her impactful journey during her second season with the Perth Scorchers in WBBL|07, ultimately guiding them to the championship.
