Sydney University Cricket Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Alex Blackwell to the club's Board.

Alex has represented the Australian Women's team since 2003, when she first appeared in both Test cricket and One Day Internationals.  She has played 11 Tests for Australia, as well as 141 ODIs and 95 International T20s.  She was outstanding in the recent Women's World Cup in England, striking a ferocious 90 from only 56 balls in the semi-final against India.  Apart from her commitments with Australia and New South Wales, Alex has been a highly valued member of the Universities Women's Cricket Club for many years.

SUCC Chairman, Max Bonnell, says: "We are delighted that a cricketer of Alex's experience and insight will be contributing to the Board.  Alex shares our club's goals to match high performance with an environment in which we can develop good people.  Her input will be valuable across a whole range of issues, and we are especially looking forward to her helping us to align ourselves more closely with the Universities Women's Cricket Club."
