Jade played her first game for the Sapphires, Australia's entry to FairBreak's world first Invitational Women's T20 Cricket Tournament over the weekend and said she really enjoyed it.

"It was really fun, playing with people from all over the globe was really exciting," Allen said. 

"It was a great opportunity for me to get out there and have a bat."

And bat she did, Allen scored 33 off 41 balls in an impressive display.
