Ferling returns after World Cup victory in India

WORLD CUP WINNER: Holly Ferling
WORLD CUP WINNER: Holly Ferling Aiden Burgess

IT IS back to the normal teenage life tomorrow for Holly Ferling.

The 17-year-old will meet with teachers at Kingaroy State High School on Friday to discuss how to catch up on school work after an extended summer break.

That doesn't sound too out of the ordinary but Ferling heads into her final year of schooling on the back of helping Australia win a sixth ICC Women's World Cup in India.

Ferling arrived back in Australia this morning with captain Jodie Fields from Toowoomba and was still on a high after Sunday night's final victory over West Indies.

The international rookie missed out on a place in the Australian team for the final after an impressive start to her ODI career, but loved the experience of being part of a World Cup-winning squad.

"It's unbelievable. It's something that I guess you dream of as an aspiring cricketer," she said.

"The World Cup is what you want to play in and to win it was amazing."

The developing fast bowler has no domestic or international commitments for the rest of the summer and could play again for Kingaroy Services.

Her attention will shortly turn to netball season as her Wide Bay Thundercats team prepares for the state league season.
