Bio

Arguably the best athlete in Australia, Ellyse Perry’s profile continues to rise with the dual cricket and soccer international having played World Cups for both sports.

Perry became the youngest Australian ever to play senior international cricket when she made her debut in the second ODI of the Rose Bowl Series in Darwin in July 2007 before her 17th birthday.

She went on to make her domestic debut in the 2007-08 Women’s National Cricket League season, taking 2-29 from 10 overs in her first match.

Since her national debut, Perry has become a regular fixture for the Southern Stars, playing in the 2009 ICC Women’s World Cup and the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 in the same year.  

Leading Australia’s bowling attack, Perry played a crucial role in the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Final in the West Indies in 2010.

The match came down to the wire, with New Zealand requiring five runs off the last ball to claim the title. Under immense pressure, Perry bowled the final ball of the tournament, which New Zealand’s Sophie Devine struck straight off the bat.

The talented footballer stuck out her boot to deflect the ball to Lisa Sthalekar at mid-on, securing the trophy for Australia. Perry’s figures of 3-18 in the final saw her take home the Player of the Match award.

Perry featured prominently in Australia's three-peat of World T20 victories, selected for the Team of the Tournament in 2012 and 2014. 

In 2013 Perry played a key role in Australia claiming the ICC Women’s World Cup in India in 2013, despite suffering from an ankle injury. She finished with 3-19 in the final, claiming the scalps of the West Indies’ top three batters.

Perry was named player of the series in Australia's Ashes triumph over England in 2015 and captained the Sydney Sixers in WBBL|01.
