who is ellyse perry

Ellyse Alexandra Perry, an Australian sportswoman who was born on 3 November 1990, has competed for her nation in both cricket and association football. Ellyse Perry is the youngest Australian to play international cricket and the first to have participated in both the ICC and FIFA World Cups, having made her debut for both the national soccer team and the national cricket team at the age of 16. From 2014 onward, Perry gradually transitioned to a single-sport professional career. Her storied cricket career has since flourished, and she is now regarded as one of the best female players in history.

She was the first player to amass 1,000 runs and 100 wickets in T20Is, she holds the record for the highest Test score by an Australian woman (213 not out), and she was the third player to take 150 wickets in women’s ODIs, demonstrating her mastery of both the batting and fast bowling disciplines. Perry is a true all-rounder. Her contributions to numerous successful teams at the domestic and international levels across the three main cricket formats have resulted in Australia winning seven world championships, New South Wales winning eleven WNCL titles, and the Sydney Sixers winning two WBBL titles. Additionally, she has received numerous individual accolades, including being named one of the Wisden Five Cricketers of the Decade: 2010–19 and earning the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Award and the Belinda Clark Award three times each.

Perry is acknowledged as a key player in the growing female presence in Australia’s sporting culture due to her on-field success, off-field marketability, and status as “the ultimate role model”.

I think sport can play a really positive role in young girls’ lives and be great to see as many of them playing sport as possible.

childhood and early life

Ellyse Perry was raised in the Sydney neighborhood of Wahroonga and went to Pymble Ladies’ College and Beecroft Primary School there. At Pymble, she served as the captain of cricket, athletics, and sports. She participated in a variety of sports during her school years, in addition to cricket and soccer, including tennis, athletics, touch football, and golf. At the age of nine, she made a friendship with future Australian teammate Alyssa Healy, with whom she played cricket throughout their childhood. Although Perry is more frequently known by the moniker “Pez,” Healy occasionally referred to her as “Dags” due to an ill-fitting uniform she wore at the junior level.

Perry participated in a cricket match for New South Wales in an under-19 interstate competition shortly after turning 16 in January 2007. She totaled 74 runs and three wickets in three games. She was chosen for the Australian youth squad to tour New Zealand and compete against the home country’s second XI a month later. She grabbed one wicket for 100.00 and scored 43 runs at 21.50.

ellyse perry quotes

  • No one is perfect, and no one should be made to feel like they have to be perfect. It’s nice that we all have unique qualities that make us different as athletes and humans. That’s why it’s so important to surround yourself with people who truly care about you.
  • But, without a doubt, my favorite thing? It’s sitting in a change room like this after a match. There’s no time frame on how long you’ll sit there. There’s no formality. You’re just enjoying each other’s company, thinking about cricket.
  • When I started out there weren’t even contracts for players and now all the girls on the team are full-time professional athletes, I guess seeing that evolve over a period of time has been incredible.
  • Put yourself into every situation in training and against every style of bowling, and do that for hours and hours and hours. Then when you get to a match, it’s almost instinctive the way you play because you’ve done it so often in training.
  • My mum, Kathy, works as a GP and my dad, Mark, was a high school math teacher. He now manages mum’s practice and is also my cricket coach. We are a close-knit family.
  • I think sport can play a really positive role in young girls’ lives and be great to see as many of them playing sport as possible.
