As of 8 March 2020

The Australian women's national cricket team represent Australia in international women's cricket. They were nicknamed Southern Stars, but in 2017 this name was dropped and are now known only as the Australian women's cricket team in an attempt to promote gender equality with the men, who have no nickname for their team.[8][9]

The team is currently captained by Meg Lanning and coached by former Victoria and Queensland batsman Matthew Mott.[10] As of 21 August 2018, they are ranked first in all forms of women's international cricket.

The team played their first Test match in 1934–35, when they lost to England two-nil in a three-Test series. They now compete against England for the Women's Ashes. They have won more World Cups than any other side — winning in 1978, 1982, 1988, 1997, 2005 and 2013. The team has also be crowned champions of the ICC Women's World Twenty20 tournament more than any other side – winning in 2010, 2012, 2014, 2018 and 2020.

In 2003, Women's Cricket Australia (WCA), and the Australian Cricket board (ACB) merged to form a single national cricket board (now known as Cricket Australia), which remains to this day. This merger has been a positive influence on women's cricket, providing more financial support and gathering more exposure for the sport.[11]
