Perth Scorchers WBBL

Head Coach - Shelley Nitschke

Nitschke, one of Australia’s greatest allrounders, brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the Scorchers in the West.

She played 122 international matches, claiming 153 wickets and scored 3,118 runs before retiring at the peak of her powers in 2011 as the world’s No.1 allrounder and bowler.

The legendary allrounder played a pivotal role in the Aussie Women’s victory in the 2020 and 2005 Women’s World Cups and claimed ICC Women’s Cricketer of the Year honours at the 2010 Women’s World T20.

Nitschke has also won the Belinda Clark Award as Australia Women’s Cricketer of the Year on four occasions.

Since her retirement, Nitschke has taken on coaching roles with South Australia, the Adelaide Strikers and Cricket Australia. She is looking forward to building on the Scorchers’ success in the coming seasons.
