Megan Schutt is an Australian Fast bowler who has represented Australia in all forms of the game. She represents Adelaide strikers in the WBBL. Schutt played her first domestic season at the age of 16, for South Australia Scorpions in 2009 and soon made a name for herself with her quick fast bowling.Giving continuous match winning performances for her domestic side, helped her to get a maiden callup for the New Zealand series in 2012. She was bit expensive in her debut match, but made a strong comeback in the next couple of matches. Though she was a wicket taking bowler, she struggled for the right length and accuracy initially. Despite that, she was also named in the 2013 World Cup winning squad which was questioned by many, but she shut down the critics by becoming the highest wicket taker of the tournament with 15 wickets. Steadily she improved her bowling length and accuracy, which helped her to gain her T20 debut cap against New Zealand in 2013. The same year she also played her 1st test match against England. Since then, she has been the backbone of the Australian bowling, forming the core of the team along with Lanning, Perry and Healy.
Till date she has notched up 80+ International wickets.
