Summary

  • ALICE Springs Women’s Cricket president Amber Ashton was manning a barbecue when she knew she was onto a winner.
  • Ashton was at Traeger Park, Alice Springs’ premier sporting ground, in late 2017 as the first game of a local female T20 series was being played.
  • But the 41-year-old Ashton, who has only been Alice Springs Women’s Cricket president for two years since replacing Renee Boardman, concedes she was not even sure Alice Springs would embrace a T20 series for females.
  • “We do T20 because we have girls from our local cricket who do or want to represent Alice Springs in the country champions and the National Indigenous Cricket Championships,” she says.
  • “In five years time I would like to see Alice Springs women’s cricket doing solely a T20 competition,” she says.
