Kim Garth Biography – Kim Garth Wiki

Kim Garth is an Irish-Australian cricketer who currently plays for Victoria, Melbourne Stars, and Australia.

She was born in Dublin. An all-rounder, she plays as a right-arm medium bowler and right-handed batter. Between 2010 and 2019, she played international cricket for Ireland, the country of her birth, playing more than 100 matches for the side, before deciding to move to Australia. She made her international debut for Australia in December 2022.

Garth made her international debut in July 2010, in a one-off ODI against New Zealand. On debut, she was 14 years and 70 days old, making her the youngest Irishwoman to debut and the third-youngest overall (behind Pakistan’s Sajjida Shah and Scotland’s Fiona Urquhart).

Garth proceeded to play six more ODIs in 2010, including at the 2010 ICC Women’s Challenge in South Africa. Aged 14 years and 174 days, she became the youngest player of any country to appear in that format, beating the record set by the Netherlands’ Miranda Veringmeier. Three of her Irish teammates – Elena Tice, Lucy O’Reilly, and Gaby Lewis – have since debuted at younger ages.

In ODIs, her most outstanding performance to date came in August 2012, when she took 4/11 from five overs against Bangladesh. Her highest score at that level was made during the same month, an innings of 39 runs against Pakistan. In Twenty20 Internationals, Garth has taken two three-wicket hauls – 3/6 against the Netherlands in August 2011, and 3/17 against Australia in August 2015.

Garth was named International Women’s Player of the Year at the Cricket Ireland Awards in November 2015.

In June 2018, she was named in Ireland’s squad for the 2018 ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Qualifier tournament. In Ireland’s opening match of the tournament, against Australia, she made her 100th international appearance for the team. After the conclusion of the tournament, she was named as the standout player in the team by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

In August 2019, she was named in Ireland’s squad for the 2019 ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Qualifier tournament in Scotland.

In June 2020, Garth accepted a two-year contract with the Victoria women’s cricket team in Australia. She made her debut for Victoria in a Women’s National Cricket League match in February 2021, taking 2-25 from 8.2 overs to help her new team to an eight-wicket win over arch-rivals New South Wales.

Ahead of the 2020–21 season, she spent the Australian winter working with former Australia paceman Clint McKay on enhancing her game and was then signed by Melbourne Stars. In the early stages of WBBL|07, she showcased her recently augmented skills by taking a match-winning 3–11 against Sydney Thunder and then scoring 44* from 29 deliveries against Hobart Hurricanes the following day.

On 9 December 2022, she made her international debut for Australia, in a Twenty20 International against India.

In March 2023, she was named in Australia’s Test squad for the Ashes series against England. She made her Test debut in that match, on 22 June 2023.
