In a special episode of The Alternative Sport Show, hosts Matthew Connell and Andre Dixon are joined by Australia all-rounder Ellyse Perry who has been dubbed the greatest women’s cricketer of the decade
In 2007, at the age of 16, Ellyse became the youngest cricketer to represent Australia. Two weeks later she made her debut for the Matildas, the Australian women’s football team, in an Olympic qualifier against Hong Kong, scoring in the second minute. She is the first Australian to have appeared in both ICC and FIFA World Cups and one of a very small number of global sportspeople to have played in both full stop.
This summer she’ll be playing as part of the inaugural ‘The Hundred’ competition where she will link up with England duo Amy Jones and Georgia Elwiss and New Zealand captain Sophie Devine for the Birmingham Phoenix for the ECB’s new 100-ball competition, which launches on July 21 with a women’s match between Oval Invincibles and Manchester Originals at The Kia Oval – a new event fusing epic entertainment with high energy cricket action.
