We have some pretty hard girl crushes. These are the types of ladies that stamp their style on the world. They are the type of people that will always be remembered and little girls grow up wanting to be. They are women of substance. Women that make the world a better place. Happy Girl Crush Tuesday everybody.Today’s girl crush is on the extraordinary Meg Lanning.
Meg is Australian cricketing royalty. She was Australia’s youngest captain at the tender age of 21 and she holds a swag of records!
Her stats are undeniable. In 2011 she scored an unbeaten century against England, and on 27 March 2014 she scored 126 runs from 65 balls against Ireland. To put that into perspective, as at 29 March 2014 that was the highest individual innings score in a women’s international and the second-highest score by a male or female in any international Twenty20 match. WOAH!
Add to that the fact that she also lends her voice to Channel Nine’s commentary team! What a star.
Plus, because she is an awesome lady she is also a supporter of CareAustralia and is one of their ambassadors. We salute you!
In a male driven sport Meg is making the boys stand up and pay attention. It is fantastic to see a fun, fierce female showing everyone that girls really do rule the world!
