Greater Northern Raiders and South Launceston all-rounder Meg Radford is truly a jack of all trades.
Starting her 2019-20 season off with a bang, the 19-year-old recently opened both the batting and the bowling for the Raiders in games against Lauderdale and Clarence.
But the former Exeter High School and Newstead College student certainly doesn't favour one over the other.
"I actually love all aspects of the game - batting, bowling and fielding," she said.
"Batting is great when you are scoring runs, but also frustrating - one mistake and it's game over. There are no second chances.
"At least when you are bowling, you have another ball or over to fix your mistakes."

Starting off her career as primarily a bowler after converting from an eight-year tennis career where she represented Tasmania alongside rising stars Jessica Fowler and Ben Barnett, Radford's batting has improved dramatically over the journey.
Rising from a tail-end batter in her debut season, Radford, who boasts best figures of 8-18 delivered in December 2015, now wields a respectable batting average of 18.33 in Cricket Tasmania's Premier League competition.
"I think that opportunities to train under different coaches over the last couple of years through under-18s, Cricket Tas Pathway programs and now Raiders have really helped my batting.
"When you can take something from different coaches and they each show faith in you as a batter, it really helps your confidence and I think that has been the key for me this year.
"I have really enjoyed the challenge of playing against strong Hobart teams and players from WBBL and WNCL."
It's not just batting that's sharing the love with bowling in Radford's world, as the all-rounder spends her winter months toiling around Windsor Park for Launceston Football Club.
Coming through last season undefeated, the Blues were stopped at the final hurdle with Radford enjoying her most consistent year.
"The seasons cross over a fair bit and it can be challenging to fit everything in at times but I would hate to have to choose one or the other.
"Footy is great for my fitness and I like the pace and physicality of it - very different to cricket."
Cricket North's female competition returns on Saturday with Riverside hosting South Launceston and Launceston taking on Mowbray at the NTCA ground.
