Articles about Belinda Clark

One of the most decorated cricketers ever, Belinda Clark's list of accolades and achievements is a long one. In an international career spanning over 14 years (1991-2005), she captained the Australian women's cricket team from 1994 to 2005 and led them to two World Cup wins. She holds the record for scoring the most runs for Australia in women's cricket in ODIs and the second-highest in Tests. Clark played one of the most remarkable innings in cricket when she scored 229 (not out) against Denmark in the 1997 World Cup, the first-ever double century in an ODI by any cricketer. In 1998, she was named the Cricketer of the Year by 'Wisden Australia'. One of the most successful captains ever, she won 84 matches out of the 101 she had led. In 2011, she was inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame, only the second woman to achieve this honor. Notably, she became the first woman to be inducted into the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame in 2014. For her distinguished services to cricket, she was also named an Officer of the Order of Australia in 2018.
