The dramatic decline of the Australian men's cricket team has been well documented, particularly over the course of the recent ill-fated tour of India, but the women's team are very much on a high.
Australia's women beat England to win the World Twenty20 final in October, before adding the World Cup in India last month.
While the men's team are desperate for the next young superstar to come through the ranks as their side's slump continues on the international stage, the women may benefit from the rise of a hugely exciting talent. OK, she's only three years old, but if you're good enough you're old enough!
Showcasing her skills on a video, the young star displays a staggering array of shots, hitting down the ground with sufficient power to comfortably clear the ropes at Eden Park where England recently played New Zealand.
Check out the video above to see how good she already is. (Oh, and remember this little fella - the 'six-year-old Sachin'...)
