Fahey is a product of the highly successful Timaru Girls' High School team that dominated the national secondary schoolgirls' competition during the late 1990's. She later became a member of the 2002 NZC Academy.
She debuted for the White Ferns during the 2003 tour of India in spectacular fashion, averaging over 50 with three half-centuries. During the 2005 World Cup in South Africa , she top scored with a memorable 73 not out off 94 balls in the semi-final loss to India.
During the 2005-06 State League competition she scored 360 runs for the State Canterbury Magicians.
Fahey made three half-centuries in the Quadrangular Series in Chennai in early 2007 but failed in the final against Australia where she was dismissed for a duck. She toured Australia in July that year for the Rose Bowl Series but missed out New Zealand's next three series - the tour of England, a series against the same opposition and an ODI series against Australia - after she contracted flu and was diagnosed with chronic fatigue.
In May 2008, Fahey was named in the probables squad for the World Cup 2009.
Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
On a pitch most suited for him on this tour, David Warner, the T20-specialist-turned-Test star, got his eye in and then played a wasteful shot. The grown-up knock came from another T20 specialist, instead: Glenn Maxwell
Sudhir Gautam, uber Tendulkar fan, is now rooting for a new sport
Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
