Sharon Tredrea inducted into the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame

One of the pioneers of modern-day women’s cricket has been inducted onto the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame.

Sharon Tredrea, once regarded the fastest bowler in international women’s cricket will take her place in the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame (ACHoF) at the Australian Cricket Awards in Melbourne tonight.

“Sharon was a trailblazer of the women’s game during her career at a time when opportunities for our women’s cricketers were few and there was little or no funding available to them,” Australian Cricket Hall of Fame chairman Peter King said.

“She was a fierce competitor on the field who always strived for the ultimate performance but was equally gracious off the field.

“Sharon was always the first to congratulate her team-mates or the opposition. Her focus was always on the team and the game, unconcerned by personal statistics or achievements.”

Tredrea played ten Test matches for 30 wickets and 31 One Day Internationals for 32 wickets, including four World Cups between 1973 and 1988. Also handy with the bat, Tredrea averaged 31.45 in Test cricket and 27.78 in ODIs.

She captained Australia against New Zealand in 1979 and in Australia’s defence of the World Cup in India in 1978. She was also an inaugural female inductee into Lord’s Taverners Victoria – Legends of Victorian Cricket and is a Life Member of Cricket Victoria.

The best player for the Victorian women’s team is awarded the Sharon Tredrea Award at the end of each season. Sister Janette also represented Australia in five Tests and five One Day Internationals.

Cricket Victoria congratulates Sharon Tredrea on what is a very well deserved induction to the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame.
