Ema Kuribayashi is visiting Australia from the Japan Cricket Association doing her level 2 coaching accreditation. She is the captain of the Japan Women’s National Team. Ema opened the batting for the Cricket Victoria staff team in the Master Blasters Corporate Twenty20 last Friday night. A nuggetty, small left hander in the mould of Justin Langer, Ema was spared no quarter being peppered by unrelenting short stuff from the opposition openers who stood over the six foot tall! After taking a couple in the ribs she holed out in the deep hooking! Legend!
