  • Cricket Australia launches transgender inclusive policy

The policy states: 'To consider the relevant aspects of strength, stamina or physique any player who is participating in elite female cricket must be able to establish that their concentration of testosterone in serum has been less than 10 nanomoles per litre continuously for at least 12 months.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison speaks during a joint press conference at the Istana Presidential Palace in Singapore, 07 June 2019.

Roberts said the Australian policy closely matched the International Cricket Council's eligibility on the basis of gender recognition.

In an interview with Sydney radio station 2GB, Morrison attacked new rules that support transgender and gender diverse people to play cricket at the highest level.

CA announced the direction for the inclusion of transgender and gender diverse cricketers in elite and community cricket.

Kevin Roberts, Cricket Australia's CEO, announced the major new policy.

The forward moving policy from Cricket Australia is not music to the ears of Prime Minister Scott Morrison though, who has slammed the action calling it "mystifying" and "heavy handed".

"I mean the thing about sport is it should be driven locally by local clubs and I have no doubt these sort of issues are being managed practically at a club level".

Despite attacks from politicians, the policy has been welcomed by women's cricket players.

"Our dedication to a fair and inclusive sport across global and domestic competitions sees the policy strike a balance between the opportunity to participate and ensuring fair competition".

Cricket Australia's policy also provides guidance to community clubs, supporting grassroots cricketers to compete as the gender with which they identify.

According to participation data released by Sport Australia in April cricket is Australia's 14th most popular sport or physical activity.

Australian women cricketer Megan Schutt seemed elated to find this and said that this would help to create a better environment for everyone to play.

Former Australian global player Alex Blackwell has been central to the introduction of the policy.

Imagine having one club being active in their inclusivity of trans and gender-diverse players, but another club stubbornly remaining steadfast in outdated views.

"Now that we know that anyone who is transgender or gender diverse has a chance to play cricket at the highest level - and rightfully so - I'm confident that the elite cricket policy will provide a fair process for transgender and gender diverse cricketers to embark on that pathway".
