Ashleigh Gardner (born 15 April 1997) is an Australian cricketer who plays for New South Wales Breakers in the Women's National Cricket League and Sydney Sixers in the Australian Women's Big Bash League. In November 2018, she was named in the Sydney Sixers' squad for the 2018–19 Women's Big Bash League season.
Gardner played for Australia in the Women's Ashes. In the first ODI she took three wickets in the first innings, then combined with Alex Blackwell in the second innings for a 39 run partnership from just 29 balls. She hit two sixes in her innings and, though she was dismissed after only 18 balls, she had put Australia in a position where they only needed two runs from the final over.
In April 2018, she was one of the fourteen players to be awarded a national contract for the 2018–19 season by Cricket Australia. In October 2018, she was named in Australia's squad for the 2018 ICC Women's World Twenty20 tournament in the West Indies. Ahead of the tournament, she was named as the player to watch in the team.
