The Australian women's national cricket team (nicknamed the Southern Stars) represent Australia in international women's cricket. The team is currently captained by Meg Lanning and coached by former Victoria and Queensland batsman Matthew Mott.[6] As of 20 October 2015, the Southern Stars 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 and 2014.

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.[7]
