It's the summer of 2013-14, Tayla Vlaeminck's first competitive season of cricket.
Playing for Strathdale-Maristians' under-15s, Vlaeminck charges in and lets fly with a searing bouncer.
The batsman at the other end - at the time one of the premier junior cricketers in Bendigo - stunned by such accurate short-pitched fast bowling, narrowly avoids a ball to the head.
A short time later he's on his way back to the pavillion after being dismissed by Vlaeminck.
That was just one of many signs that Tayla Vlaeminck was something special.
Athletic, fast and a fierce competititor - the same traits that have endeared Vlaeminck to her Australian team-mates.
On Thursday night, just five years after playing her first game of cricket, Vlaeminck will make her Test debut against England in Taunton.
She's the first female Bendigo cricket product to pull on the Baggy Green cap and the first Bendigo cricketer to play Test cricket since Craig White played the last of his 30 Test matches for England in 2002.
Vlaeminck's first coach at Strathdale-Maristians, David Bakes, is not surprised by the fast bowler's rise to international level.
"Tayla was a natural from the start,'' Bakes said.
"She was so athletic and was one of the best fielders in the team straight away.
"She's so competitive, which is why she was so good against the boys."
Vlaeminck's competitive streak, combined with her skill, allowed Bakes to use her in an attacking way against the region's best junior players.
"Back then we'd rotate our bowlers and they'd get two or three overs each at a time,'' Bakes said.
"I would always hold Tayla back until the opposition's best batsman was in.
"None of them wanted to go out to a girl, but she'd pick them off for fun.
"I'd like to say it was my coaching, but that's not the case. She's always been a special talent."
Two knee reconstructions and a shoulder reconstruction slowed Vlaeminck's development.
A strong tour to South Africa with an Australian under-19 squad last year helped Vlaeminck her way into the Australian T20 squad for last year's World Cup where the Aussies were crowned champions.
She also made her one-day international debut, playing two games, before her Australian summer was ruined by another knee injury.
The Australian selectors showed faith in Vlaeminck's ability and selected her for the Ashes tour to England.
She watched on from the sidelines as Australia won all three one-day games against England.
Last weekend's three-day trial game against the England Academy gave Vlaeminck one chance to impress selectors ahead of the Test match.
She didn't waste the opportunity. Vlaeminck had match figures of 5-50, with her pace impressing Australian bowling coach Ben Sawyer.
"With the Test match cricket, the extra pace is going to be really important and she has that," Sawyer told cricket.com.au.
"It's huge because it's different, there's not a whole lot of girls out there at the moment that bowl that quick, so anything different can be effective."
