WA Cricket CEO Christina Matthews inducted into WA Women’s Hall of Fame

Long-serving WA Cricket chief executive Christina Matthews has been inducted into the WA Women’s Hall of Fame in a nod to her contribution to cricket as an administrator and player.

Matthews, one of only two women to hold the position of a first-class cricket association CEO, has been an integral part WA Cricket’s success since her appointment in the role more than a decade ago.

She has been a driving force behind the WACA’s redevelopment project which involved obtaining matching funding of at least $30M each from the State and Federal Governments.

The Australian wicketkeeper, who played 20 Test matches and 47 One-Day Internationals during the 1980s and ‘90s, was also named the 2022 WA Sports Administrator of the Year and selected in 2022 as one of WA’s most influential individuals.
