As I mentioned above, Megan Schutt is widely considered to be one of the best bowlers in the world, and has helped Australia lift the Ashes, and the 50-over and 20-over World Cups! Australia is so lucky to have someone so awesome on our team! Did you know that Megan is also the first Aussie female cricketer to take a hattrick in a 20-over game? Wow!
KZ: Hi Megan! What is the hardest part of your job, and the best?
M: I think the time away from home is the hardest. We can spend 4-6 (or more) months on the road, either overseas or home tours; so I miss a lot of important social/family events. I don’t particularly like the 2km Time Trials either! The best part is literally being able to represent Australia, in the sport I love, with the people I love on a regular basis. I’m very lucky.
KZ: If you could add any character to the Australian team, who would it be?
M: Iron Man, because Iron Man is simply the best!
Megan in action!
KZ: Do you have any unusual skills or talents?
M: I enjoy skateboarding and drawing, unfortunately I am not musically talented – so kudos to everyone out there that can play guitar.
KZ: Has there ever been a funny prank within the team that you could share?
M: Nothing too wild, that’s for sure. However, we do like to hide people’s clothes or gear, just to make them panic. Some people are too grumpy to play pranks on!

What would you say you're a 'pro' at doing? I'm pretty good at doing a fancy move called a 'moulinet' with a lightsaber, and I'm a bit of a speed reader! Let me know your special stunt talent in the comments below!
