Arguably the greatest all-rounder in the modern game, Ellyse Perry has played more than 100 internationals in the T20 format, is Australia’s most prolific wicket-taker with over 100 wickets and has also scored over 1000 runs.
Perry was named in the NSW under-19 cricket team soon after turning 16. She was then fast-tracked into the Australian side, becoming the youngest Australian to play international cricket in the Rose Bowl series against New Zealand in 2007, despite never having played a domestic match at senior level.
At the same time, a thriving football career was developing. Perry had already made her debut for the Matildas and represented Australia at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2011. In 2012, she was forced to make a choice between the two sports after playing 18 games for the Matildas, although she played her last game in the W-League in 2015.
Perry’s 213 not out in a day-night Test against England at North Sydney Oval in 2017 remains the highest score by an Australian player in a women’s Test and the third-highest in history.
In December 2020, she was named ICC Female Player of the Decade, as well as the women’s one-day international and T20 cricketer of the decade.
