Date of Event Dandenong Cricket Club : Thu Jul 25, 2019 11:26PM

Cathryn Fitzpatrick was last week inducted in to the ICC Hall of Fame in a thoroughly deserved - but no less tremendous - recognition for the DCC Life Member and Legend.

Fitz was in fine company as she received the award alongside fellow modern greats in Allan Donald and Sachin Tendulkar in a ceremony in London.

Notable achievements highlighted by the ICC included:

  • 13 Tests for Australia, taking 60 wickets at 19.11 apiece
  • 109 ODIs, taking 180 wickets at 16.79 apiece
  • Her 180 ODI wickets were a world record from her retirement in 2003 until May 2017
  • Took 33 wickets in 25 ICC Women’s World Cup matches
  • Won ICC Women’s World Cup with Australia in 1997 and 2005
  • Coached Australia’s Women’s team from May 2012 to May 2015, winning a World Cup and two ICC WWT20 titles
  • Spent a women’s record 2113 days as the number 1 ranked ODI bowler (2000-2007)
  • Reached 898 points in the Women’s ODI rankings in February 2004 – the highest bowling points tally for any woman


In typical fashion, Fitz was quick to refer back to where it started saying “I have had many people over the journey who have guided me as coaches, team-mates, administrators and friends and I would like to thank them all.”
