Former Ireland international cricketer Kim Garth made her debut for Australia in their T20 international against India in Mumbai this afternoon.

The Dubliner, who represented Ireland on 114 occasions between 2010 and 2020 - making her international debut at the age of 14 - relocated to Australia two years ago after signing a two-year contract with Victoria.

Garth's reputation has grown significantly in her two years Down Under, culminating in her selection for Friday's T20 game in India.

She is the first female cricketer to have represented Australia having already played international cricket for another nation.

The all-rounder bowled three overs, taking one wicket for the loss of 27 runs as India posted a target of 172/5.

Australia subsequently chased the total down, reaching 173/1 with 11 balls to spare.

Garth's departure in 2020 was "a blow", admitted Ireland coach Ed Joyce, though he acknowledged the player's ambition to play cricket professionally.

The player, for her part, said at the time it had not been an easy decision.

"To leave family, friends and the whole Irish cricket community was a very difficult decision and one I did not take lightly," Garth said in 2020.

"However, my ambition has always been to be a full-time professional cricketer and to play at the highest level. A chance like this doesn't present itself too often, so I am keen to seize this opportunity."

Garth is the daughter of two former Irish international cricketers, South African born Jonathan Garth and Anne-Marie McDonald, both of whom represented Ireland in the late 1980s.
