Beth Mooney Hot Shot
Beth Mooney has developed into one of the most consistent batters in the game with a versatility that can see her take any role in the order while she is also a wicketkeeper. Mooney made her debut for the Queensland Fire as a 16-year-old in 2009-10; her breakthrough season at domestic level coming in 2012-13, when she averaged 44 for Fire, including four half-centuries.
An injury to Alyssa Healy provided Mooney with her first international opportunity in January 2016 against India in a T20I; and just weeks later she made a debut half-century in her first ODI, scoring 53 as she opened the batting in a losing cause versus New Zealand at Mount Maunganui. Healy returned for the T20 World Cup in India later in 2016, but Mooney had done enough to retain her place, though she was relegated down the order into a pure batting role, and had just two opportunities in the tournament.
Beth Mooney Life Story
In 2017 she scored maiden international hundreds in both ODIs (against New Zealand in Auckland) and T20Is (against England in Canberra) although each came in a losing cause. Mooney was part of the Australia team that exited the 2017 ODI World Cup in the semi-final against India and has since been a key part of their resurgence.
From 2019 she took her batting to another level, forging the tournament-winning stand alongside Healy in the final of 2020 T20 World Cup at the MCG while in ODIs produced one of the finest run-chase innings when she made an unbeaten 125 against India in Mackay.
Domestically, Mooney took Brisbane Heat to back-to-back WBBL titles in 2018 and 2019 with Player of the Match innings in both finals before moving west to join Perth Scorchers. She was the leading run-scorer in consecutive seasons and in the 2021-22 campaign helped Scorchers to their first title.
