Vale Lorna Beal (nee Larter)

Cricket Victoria sends its condolences to the family of Lorna Beal (née Larter) after the former Australian and Victorian player passed away aged 96.

Beal is regarded a pioneer for the game who played a significant role in creating a pathway for today’s players.

Born in Hawthorn, Beal began playing cricket as a 12 year old.

The batter and wicket-keeper scored around 2,000 runs for Hawthorn Ladies Cricket Club between 1938/39 and 1950/51.

Beal was selected to open the batting for Victoria and made her Australian debut against New Zealand in 1948 in the first women’s Test between the two countries.

Beal played seven Tests for Australia taking seven catches and nine stumpings before retiring after the 1951 tour of England.
