Holly Lee Ferling (born 22 December 1995) is an Australian cricketer who made her debut for the Australia national women's cricket team in 2013 and currently plays for the Brisbane Heat and Queensland Cricket in Australia's domestic competitions. A right-arm fast-medium paced bowler, Ferling made four appearances during the 2013 Women's Cricket World Cup, taking nine wickets at an average of 10.55; placing her second on the bowling averages tables.[1] She was named as the twelfth player in the team of the tournament, selected by an ICC panel.[2]

At the age of 14, Ferling made her debut in men's grade cricket in Queensland, and took a hat-trick with her first three balls. She later became the first woman to be named as the Queensland Junior Cricketer of the Year.[3] Ferling developed her game playing alongside men, something she feels has helped her to teach her where to bowl.[4]

In June 2015, she was named as one of Australia's touring party for the 2015 Women's Ashes in England, after a period of injury.[5]

In July 2015, Ferling was named as the first signing for the Brisbane Heat in the inaugural Women's Big Bash League.[6]
