McDermott, a brutal fast bowler of his cricket, appeared in 71 Tests and 138 ODIs between 1984 and 1996 for Australia. He was a key member of Australia’s pace attack under Allan Border’s captaincy. He is one of a select few to average under 30 with the ball in Test and ODIs

On the other hand, three-time women’s World Cup winner Tredrea was one of the quicket bowlers in her heyday to play women’s fame. He played 10 Tests and 31 ODIs between 1975 and 1988. She also played in four World Cups in her career.

McDermott, nicknamed Billy, has most recently served as the national bowling coach for Australia. Again over the last three seasons, his son Ben has been a T20 star for the Hobart Hurricanes.

“The selection committee considered a number of nominees to ultimately choose two of the best players Australia has produced for their contributions to club, state and international cricket.

“Sharon and Craig are well deserved inductees into the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame to join an elite group of people who have given so much to cricket, the game we love,” said Peter King, the chairman of the Hall of Fame.

“Does it mean that I’m old? Or I’m nearly dead? I’m not sure. It’s a great thing to achieve and be part of such an elite bunch of men and women players that have been inducted into the Hall of Fame,” said McDermott of his inclusion.
