All-rounder Perry reaches 300 not out for Australia, open to 400

Ellyse Perry isn’t sure what will happen next in her amazing international cricket career. She says that playing 400 matches is a possibility.

On Sunday, India will host the second game in the T20I series between Australia and India. If she wins, she will be the first Australian woman to play 300 times for her country.

And Perry is one of the best athletes in Australian history. She is also a big reason why the national women’s team keeps doing well. When asked if playing in 400 games is a goal, Perry said she hadn’t set a cap on how long she would play.

“I don’t know what’s in store …but if it’s meant to be down the track and I’m still around playing …I’m really open to what happens,” she stated from India. “I don’t have a set time for it.” It doesn’t matter which way you look at it; it’s just a number.

“For as long as I can contribute to the team and it’s something I find really motivating and enjoyable, I’d love to be here.”

Perry wasn’t on Australia’s T20I team at the beginning of 2022, but she changed her game and came back as an important player.

He has also bowled less since hurting his leg badly in the 2020 World Cup, when he was 33 years old. For Perry and for the powerful Australia team as a whole, the key is to keep getting better.

India beat Australia for the first time in a Test match on this tour. The home team also won the first T20I match, but Australia won all three one-day matches in the middle.

“This is a great time for us to evolve. “That’s been clear in a lot of the way Phoebe Litchfield has played in those one-day matches and in Annabel Sutherland’s last year,” Perry said.

“That is something we are very aware of: to keep the success we’ve had but also to build on it and make the way the team plays a little different.” The game is going by so fast. There is a new setting. There are many ways in which it can go “off the charts.”

Perry said nice things about her family and said she loves still talking on the phone with her dad Mark.

“He bowls me every time.” “In general, Dad will always know how to measure me,” she said.

A lot of people came to the MCG to see Australia win the 2020 World Cup because of Perry, who has been a big part of the sport’s rapid growth.

She remembered her first game, which took place in Darwin in 2007 and drew about 30 people. “It continues to blow my socks off when stuff like that happens, which has been a true privilege.” – Thanks to ESPNcricinfo
