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. 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]
