This week on SportsParenthood, we go a bit rogue at the start of the episode, because we were still on a high after watching Top Gun: Maverick. please make a date with your local cinema and WATCH THIS MOVIE.

She currently plays in the Women’s Big Bash League — or domestic T20 competition — for the Hobart Hurricanes, which is an exhilarating and fast-paced style of the game.
