Profile

Aptly nicknamed "the Megastar", Meg Lanning has achieved an incredible amount for someone so young. In 2006 she became the first girl to play first XI cricket for a Public Schools team when she represented Carey Grammar at the age of 14. Her ODI debut came in 2011 against England, and in only her second game, she scored an unbeaten 103, becoming at 18 years and 288 days old the youngest Australian - male or female - to score an international century. A year later, in an ODI against New Zealand, she broke the record for the fastest century by an Australian, racking up her ton in a mere 45 balls.
