Perry sets new milestone

29 July 2019

Sydney Sixers captain Ellyse Perry has become the first player male or female to reach the milestone of 1000 runs and 100 wickets in T20 internationals with another Player of the Match performance against England overnight.

Perry scored 47 not out off 39 balls including 4 fours and a six in the Australia's 7-wicket win over England overnight.

Perry also took 1/17 with the ball as the Southern Stars continued their unbeaten run in this Ashes series.

The series comes to an end with the third and final T20 international at Bristol early on Thursday morning.
