Australia Women’s Team and Melbourne Stars WBBL captain, Meg Lanning has advised Cricket Australia (CA) that she will take a period of indefinite leave effective immediately.

Lanning has made the decision to take a break from the game for personal reasons, with no timeline set for her return.

Lanning will miss the upcoming edition of The Hundred where she was due to represent the Trent Rockets. CA will continue to support Lanning, with a decision on her participation in the upcoming Australian domestic summer to be made in due course.

Speaking about the decision, Lanning said:

“After a busy couple of years, I’ve made the decision take a step back to enable me to spend time focusing on myself.

“I’m grateful for the support of CA and my teammates and ask that my privacy is respected during this time.”

Melbourne Stars General Manager Blair Crouch said:

“We’re fully supportive of Meg’s desire to have a break from cricket and we will give her all the time, support and space she needs.”
