When it comes to trailblazers in women's cricket there are few who have achieved more or made a bigger impact than Belinda Clark. As a player, BC was unparalleled. She became the first player - male or female - to score 200 in an one-day international and captained Australia to two World Cup wins. BC's post-playing career has been in sports administration, primarily with Cricket Australia in developing grassroots and women's cricket. It truly is an honour to speak to Belinda and I hope you get out of it as much as I did.
