South Australia Scorpions captain Lauren Ebsary has drawn the curtain on her State playing career, after 16 years in the WNCL and WT20 competitions.

She started her career with Western Australia, before returning to her home state where she chalked-up 2426 runs and 56 wickets in 119 appearances.

Ebsary took the Scorpions reigns in 2012 and had her brightest moment at the helm last season, leading the State to their first-ever WNCL title.

The 33-year-old also represented Australia in all three formats, collecting 536 runs and five wickets in 34 matches.

"I’ve had some amazing opportunities through cricket, made great friends, travelled and will have a lifetime of memories," Ebsary told cricket.com.au.

"I’m very grateful to the SACA, WACA and Cricket Australia for their support throughout my career."

ACA Female Membership Manager Jodie Fields paid tribute to her former teammate.

"Lauren has been a wonderful contributor to women’s cricket at all levels. Her leadership credentials were on show when she led a young South Australian side to WNCL glory last season," she said.

"A former ACA Delegate, Lauren should also be acknowledged for her contribution off the field, advocating for the improvement of women’s cricket in Australia. ACA wishes Lauren all the best in her future playing and professional endeavours."

It is yet to be confirmed whether or not Ebsary will continue with the Adelaide Strikers in the WBBL next season.
