Alex Blackwell lived and breathed our national sport of cricket for thirty years. Starting as a kid, she spent her childhood and teen years on the field with her identical twin, Kate, who was equally devoted to the bat and ball. While both sisters went on to represent Australia, Alex built a 15-year career in the green and gold, eventually rising to the captaincy, notching up an eye-watering list of sporting achievements and etching her name into cricket' s history. But life off the field brought challenges of its own. From her professional debut, Alex was unafraid to call out hypocrisy and go in to battle against the traditional hierarchies of the game. Speaking out and becoming a passionate advocate for women and LGBTQI people in sport won her many fans and much respect, but it didn' t come without a price. Fair Game is the unmissable account of life and leadership inside Australia' s most loved sporting team, told by one of its most capped players of all time. This is the story of the sacrifices and victories, the extreme highs and devastating lows, that come with playing sport at the highest level, and of what it takes to be truly courageous on and off the field.
Alex Blackwell is a former Australian women' s cricket captain who represented Australia 251 times across Tests, One Day Internationals and T20 Internationals, with the team winning the World Cup and The Ashes under her captaincy. Since her retirement in late 2019 Alex has continued to be involved in the game as a board member, commentator, and media spokesperson. After initially studying medicine at university - and having to change degrees so she could play cricket for Australia - she now works as a genetic counsellor in addition to being a commentator on Fox Sports and ABC Grandstand. She is a patron of Pride in Sport and the LBW Trust of Australia, an ambassador of the Primary Club, a Doctor of the University of New South Wales and a former non-executive director of Cricket NSW. In 2021 Alex was awarded an honorary life membership of the Marylebone Cricket Club.
