Scoop Podcast: Celebrating Ellyse Perry's 300th game

Ahead of Ellyse Perry's 300th game for Australia, join the hosts of the Scoop Podcast to reflect on some of the most iconic and memorable moments of her decorated career

In 2007, Australian selector at the time Marg Jennings plucked a 16-year-old Ellyse Perry from school to play for Australia, despite never having played a match at senior domestic level.

On Sunday night in Mumbai, Ellyse will play her 300th game for Australia.

A generational athlete, Ellyse has had an enourmous impact on the women's game in Australia and globally. Further to that, her outstanding on-field performances coupled with her genuine, humble and down-to-earth nature have made her an Australian sporting icon.

In this special episode of the Scoop Podcast, hosts Laura and Emily trace back to the start of Ellyse's career, before reflecting on some favourite 'Pez' memories from fans as well as her teammates.

Fans in Australia can tune into the second T20I to watch Ellyse's milestone match on Foxtel or Kayo.
