Australian cricket player Betty Wilson, who passed away in January, 2010.
Betty was the first cricket player ever, male or female, to score both a century and take 10 wickets in a Test match. She started playing cricket when she was 14, devoted her whole life to cricket (After a fiance dumped her once because she wouldn’t stop playing, she said, “I guess I’m married to cricket.”) and was never paid for a single match.
She was the first female cricketer named to the Australian Sports Hall of Fame and her name adorns the trophy for the national Under-21 female Championships.
