Biography Timeline


Lanning has captained Victoria since 2014 and is yet to play in a Women's National Cricket League (WNCL) championship-winning team despite consistently being a standout performer. She made her debut on 6 December 2008, scoring three runs in a win against the South Australian Scorpions. A breakout season in 2010–11 resulted in two half-centuries and an average of 67.33. Lanning recorded her first WNCL century on 29 October 2011, making 127 off 123 balls against the Queensland Fire. Her form across the 2011–12 season earned her the Sharon Tredrea Trophy as Victoria's Player of the Year. She has since won the same award on five more occasions.


Lanning made her international cricket debut on 30 December 2010 in a T20I against New Zealand at Saxton Oval, scoring ten runs in a four-wicket victory. She then played in her first ODI on 5 January 2011 against England at the WACA Ground, scoring 20 in a 33-run victory (via the Duckworth–Lewis method). On both occasions, she appeared alongside fellow debutant Sarah Coyte.


At the 2012 ICC Women's World Twenty20, Lanning was the third-highest run-scorer with 138 across five innings. She made 25 off 24 balls against England in the final which Australia went on to win by four runs.

On 10 November 2012, Lanning broke the record for the highest individual WNCL score, making 175 from 143 balls against the ACT Meteors, surpassing the previous record of 173 set by Karen Rolton. Eight days later, she made 241 not out off 136 balls for Box Hill in the Victorian Women's Cricket Association (the highest individual total in Women's Premier Cricket until she broke the record again six seasons later with a score of 244 off 145 balls). On 29 October 2016, Lanning surpassed her own WNCL record by scoring 190 runs off 153 balls against Tasmania. She was named Player of the Tournament for the 2016–17 season, although her team failed to qualify for the final.


During the 2013 Women's Ashes, Lanning made her Test debut on 11 August at Sir Paul Getty's Ground. She was run out for 48 in the first innings and made 38 in the second. The match ended in a draw.


On 19 January 2014, Lanning became Australia's youngest-ever captain, standing in for Jodie Fields mid-way through the 2013–14 Women's Ashes. She scored 78 not out from 54 balls in a T20I at Bellerive Oval, although England would go on to win the match by nine wickets and consequently clinch the series.

In February 2014, Lanning was appointed as the full-time captain of Australia's T20 team. In a retrospective interview, she described the decision as "a bit of a shock because I hadn't really thought too much about leadership or anything like that". At the 2014 World Twenty20, Lanning was the tournament's top run-scorer, compiling 257 across six innings. During a group stage match against Ireland, she made 126 runs from 65 balls to set a new record for highest individual total in women's T20Is. In the final against England, she scored 44 off 30 to help Australia chase down a target of 106 with seven wickets in hand and 29 balls remaining.

Lanning was confirmed as the national team's captain for all three forms of the game in June 2014. The Sydney Morning Herald reported the appointment as a "messy captaincy handover" from incumbent Fields, who subsequently retired from international cricket despite urges from Australian selectors to reconsider.


At the official Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) launch on 10 July 2015, Lanning was unveiled as the Melbourne Stars' first-ever player signing and captain. She was the leading run-scorer in the inaugural season, compiling 560 at an average of 56.00, and was named Player of the Tournament. Although she led the league for runs again in 2016–17, the Stars narrowly missed out on qualifying for the finals for the second consecutive season.


On 21 March 2016, Lanning was dismissed without scoring for the first time in a Twenty20 International, thereby setting a record for most Women's T20I innings (61) before registering a duck.


Lanning made her return to international cricket on a tour of India in March 2018, during which she became the second-fastest woman to reach 3,000 runs in ODIs and the first Australian to score 2,000 runs in T20Is. At the 2018 World Twenty20 tournament in the West Indies, Lanning scored 28 not out in the final against England and hit the winning run to secure another championship for Australia.


Lanning completed a Bachelor's degree in Exercise and Health Science at the Australian Catholic University, graduating in 2019.

Ahead of WBBL|03, Lanning departed the Melbourne Stars and signed on to captain the Perth Scorchers. She did not play a game with the club in the 2017–18 season due to undergoing shoulder surgery. In 2018–19, Lanning continued to be troubled with injuries, consequently playing just nine of 14 games. She nevertheless "hit a rich run of form" late in the tournament, managing 389 runs at an average of 48.62, but once again her team fell less than a game short of qualifying for finals. Lanning was the fourth-highest run-scorer in WBBL|05, finishing with 531 at an average of 40.84. She recorded her first WBBL century on 1 December 2019 in a 35-run win over the Hobart Hurricanes. The Scorchers finished the regular season in third place, resulting in Lanning's first WBBL finals appearance, although they were comfortably knocked out of the tournament via an eight-wicket semi-final loss to the Adelaide Strikers.


In June 2020, Lanning flagged the possibility of an imminent WBBL homecoming. With her contract at the Scorchers expired, she announced a return to her former team on 22 July, signing a new deal to play for the Melbourne Stars in WBBL|06. On 22 September, the Stars announced Lanning would resume her role as captain of the team.
