Chloe-Lesleigh Tryon is an allrounder, hailing from Durban who represents South Africa internationally, after playing for South Africa U-19 and KwaZulu-Natal at the domestic circles. She is a quality left-arm spinner and an equally brilliant middle-order batter.
At the age of 17, Tryon was fast-tracked to the highest level after making her mark in the age-group level and domestic circuit. The all-rounder made her international debut in a T20 clash against West Indies in 2010, to mark a unique record by dismissing Stafanie Taylor on her first ball.
A year later, she donned the South African colors in the 50-over format, making her ODI debut against England. The Kinsgway-born played her maiden Test during the historic match against India. Tryon was irregular at the highest level before getting her back injury in 2014, which led her to early retirement on medical advice.
The street-smart cricketer made an inspirational comeback after a year-long break, just before the World T20 of 2016. Afterwards, she was selected in the South African squad for the T20 World Cup, held in India. Later that season, Tryon was involved in a mammoth 142-run stand with Sune Luus for the highest sixth-wicket stand.
The Durban-based played an integral role for the Proteas during the World T20s of 2018 and 2020, was also a member of the South Africa squad for the 2017 50-over World Cup.
The all-rounder is a quality performer with both bat and ball. Tyron has missed a couple of seasons due to that career-threatening injury, however, she hasn’t dropped a beat since then. With age on her side, Tryon has the potential to cross many milestones in the coming future.
