Speaking on about the fabulous Indian batting duo, Perry said to Annesha Ghosh for ESPN Cricinfo, “Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur are two of the most dangerous batters. They both have played Big Bash over the last summer in Australia and were very good there. I think Smriti had scored a hundred in the tournament and Harmanpreet Kaur had come close.”

When asked about her response to Goswami calling her the best pace bowling all-rounder in the world. Perry responded by saying that the whole Australian team including her respects Jhulan for her longevity and what she has done for women’s cricket in general. It means a lot for her to get appreciation from Jhulan.

As team India will be facing Australia in Auckland, a relatively new place for both the teams, Perry discussed on playing at Auckland, “The dimensions of Auckland are unique. I think it’s also a drop-in wicket, so it might be quite different from the conditions that we’ve faced so far. But, as we have moved around a bit in the tournament. We feel we can adapt to conditions quickly.”

“We have played India a lot recently and we know the kind of approach we will have against them. So there’ll be a few other things once we get there that we’ll talk about as we play against them in Saturday.” Perry added.

Australia will be facing team India on Saturday, 19th March. In the 4 matches so far, Australia has dominantly won all of them and will be making sure to seal their spot in the semifinals by beating India on Saturday in Auckland.
