Nicola Carey is part of Australia’s 15-player squad for the ICC T20 World Cup which is being held in Australia from 21 February to 8 March, and includes five games at Manuka Oval, Canberra. Nicola made her debut for the NSW Breakers shortly before her 18th birthday, when NSW played South Australia in 2010-11. In 2013-14, she played her first full season of WNCL and WT20. Nicola was part of the Sydney Thunder squad that won the inaugural season of the Women’s Big Bash (2015-16), and was called into the Australian squad for the ICC T20 2016 Cricket World Cup as an injury replacement player. In 2018, Nicola was an integral part of the Australian Women’s cricket team that went all the way to win their fourth ICC World T20 championship.

Who doesn’t love coffee?! Having moved to Hobart this season, I’ve really enjoyed getting out and checking out some of the local cafes.


I bought my drone a while back and now a few of the Aussie girls have one. We go to some amazing places and it’s a great way to document our trips.

I find Netflix a great way to unwind away from training. I’ve just finished Peaky Blinders and I’m now onto the second season of You!


I love dumplings! I’m a sucker for Asian Fusion – Mr Miyagi on Chapel Street in Melbourne would have to be my favourite.

He’s such a little cutie until I have to babysit, then he’s a terror! I love getting home and seeing him as much as I can when I’m back in Sydney.
