Sixers shine in Ashes opener

03 July 2019

Sydney Sixers Ellyse Perry, Alyssa Healy and Ash Gardner were the stars of the show as Australia secured a nail-biting two-wicket victory over England in the opening match of the Ashes overnight.

Perry was destructive with the ball in hand, ripping through the English top order with a trio of early wickets en route to claiming figures of 3/43 in a Player of the Match performance. Perry was ably supported by Gardner who ended up with 2/27 from eight economical overs as the home side was bowled out for 177.
