Piepa Cleary (born 17 July 1996) is a talented young bowler who showed her promise with 12 wickets in 14 games during the 2013-14 WNCL season after debuting in December 2012.

The right-arm bowler was selected in the 2011 Australian under-18 Talent Camp as a 15-year old after taking eight wickets at the 2010-11 under-18 National Championships. As a teenager, Cleary was also part of Australia's under-19 girls team at the 2011 Indoor Cricket Juniors World Series, before captaining the under-16s to glory in 2012. The South Perth product picked up 12 wickets during that tournament.

She travelled to Dubai with the Commonwealth Bank Shooting Stars to play an England Academy team in April 2015 and has signed with the Perth Scorchers in the WBBL.[1]

She is part of the current Shooting Stars squad, and was selected in the Cricket Australia Governor-General's XI to face South Africa. The opening bowler played in every WNCL match for the Western Fury in the 2016-2017 season in the lead up to season two of the WBBL.[2]

In February 2016 Cleary was suspended for six months under Cricket Australia's Anti-Corruption Code for placing bets on cricket matches totalling $15.50.[3]

Cleary was named in Australia's extended squad for the 2017 ICC Womens World Cup.[4]

On August 23rd 2017 Piepa Cleary and another seven other promising young cricket players were named in the Inaugural Womens National Performance squad. The squad will train at the world-class NCC facility and will train alongside the Australian contracted squad at a pre-Ashes camp.[5]
