Former Australia women's captain Belinda Clark and former Australia batsman Mark Waugh (in pic) will be inducted into the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame (ACHoF) at the 2014 Allan Border Medal in Sydney on Monday. "This is a special year as we induct our first female, Belinda Clark, into the Hall of Fame," ACHoF chairman David Crow said.

"Women's cricket continues to emerge as a very important part of Australian cricket and the time is right for us to recognise the wonderful feats of some of our women on the international stage. Belinda's performances have been outstanding and she is clearly the most dominant Australian women's cricketer of the modern era."

Mark Waugh now joins his brother Steve in the Hall of Fame, making them the second set of brothers to do so, behind Ian and Greg Chappell.
