TEAMS

Rachael Haynes has become one of Australia's most adaptable players across a career of more than 10 years that has seen her bat in almost every top order position in the three formats.

The signs were promising from the start when she made 98 on Test debut against England in 2009, forming a record sixth-wicket stand of 229 with Jodie Fields, however by 2013 she had been dropped and a few years later contemplated retirement. A recall came for the 2017 World Cup and a short while later Haynes was named captain when Meg Lanning was ruled out of the 2017-18 Ashes. She would lead the side to Ashes success and has remained an integral part of the team since.

Two of her most important innings came in the 2018 and 2020 T20 World Cups and highlighted the adaptability that has become the hallmark of her game. In the semi-final against West Indies at North Sound she hit 25 off 15 balls on a tricky pitch to ensure Australia had more than enough runs to depend, although that was trumped in 2020 with the hosts under huge pressure early in their campaign.

Having lost to India in the opening match, Australia's chase of 123 against Sri Lanka was on the ropes at 10 for 3 when Haynes joined Lanning. She would 60 off 47 balls to take the team to the brink of victory, a performance which put them on course for the title.

In domestic cricket, Haynes has played for the Sydney Thunder since the launch of the WBBL and has been part of the hugely successful New South Wales side.
