Who is Louise Milliken?

Louise Elizabeth Milliken is a former international cricketer who played for the New Zealand and the Northern Districts Spirit between 1999 and 2009. A right-arm fast-medium bowler, she claimed 59 women's One Day International wickets. Louise famously attacked the playing trousers of Northern Spirit teammate Ane Swart during a State League game, by cutting one leg shorter than the other. Ane didn't realize at the time and wore the same playing trousers two days in a row, only to realize during a team huddle that Milliken had orchestrated a repeat attack overnight and made them even shorter. The 7/8th style of the pants became obvious to Ane only when she ran into the huddle and noticed a strong breeze on her right ankle. The event is still talked about as one of the most famous Northern Spirit pranks of all time.
