Kirby Short (born 3 November 1986) is an Australian cricketer who plays for Queensland Fire and Brisbane Heat.[1]

Short was born into a sporting family. Her mother represented Australia at softball and her grandfather, Mick Harvey, played first class cricket for Victoria and Queensland, and was later a Test cricket umpire. Mick Harvey's brothers, Merv and Neil Harvey, were both Australian Test cricketers; the latter came to prominence as the youngest member of the legendary Invincibles touring team.[2]

Short played under-17 and under-19 indoor cricket for Queensland, and also represented Queensland at youth level in volleyball and softball.[2]

In December 2005, Short made her debut for Queensland Fire.[2] She was part of the Fire squad that won the Women's National Cricket League title in 2014,[3] and has been a member of the Brisbane Heat squad since its inaugural WBBL01 season (2015–16).[4] In January 2017, she became Brisbane Heat's captain, replacing Delissa Kimmince who had stepped down.[5] In November 2018, she was named in Brisbane Heat's squad for the 2018–19 Women's Big Bash League season.[6][7]
