She has been a member of five successful world championship campaigns, winning one Women's Cricket World Cup and four ICC Women's World Twenty20 titles. Meg holds the record for the most Women's One Day International centuries and is the first Australian to score 2,000 Twenty20 International runs.

An ecosystem of cricket, business and life
"The Inspired Series will bring you into Cricket Australia's ecosystem of cricket, business and life through a range of personnel including players, legends, coaches and executives - and believe me we will be hearing at all the highs and lows, the fork in the road moments, the career defining decisions made and not made," said Melanie. "We won't be shying away from the biggest learning moments. Their stories are also HCL stories. The theme of each episode will echo HCL's own values of leadership, innovation, resilience, drive, agility and transformation - something we can all relate to and get inspiration from."
Meg Lanning is one of the world's pre-eminent players but also one of Australia's leading sportswomen. In her second One Day International, she scored a century against England. Since then she has gone on to surpass all before, by scoring the most amount of centuries in women's One Day Internationals and in doing so also became the fastest batter, male or female, to score 13 centuries in One Day International Cricket. As captain of the Australian Women's Cricket Team, she has led her country to three T20 World Cup titles, three Ash's wins and is looking to add a 50 over World Cup to her captaincy achievements.
