Former Australia captain Belinda Clark on Thursday became the first female cricketer to be honoured with a bronze statue. The former Australian cricketer unveiled her bronze sculpture outside the Sydney Cricket Ground on Thursday morning.

 

Her bronze cast now stands alongside former captain Richard Benaud and Steve Waugh. The 52-year-old Clark who has held several roles in Australian Cricket board was excited on this honour.

 

“I’m excited to have the sculpture in place and for people to now look at it and perhaps wonder….. who that is and to be able to tell a bit of a story is really important,” Clark said.


Known for scoring the first double century in ODI cricket, Clark played 15 Tests and over 100 l imited-over matches between 1991-2005. His historic double hundred came against Denmark in 1997 with an unbeaten knock of 229.
