This magnificent performance with the bat created history in international cricket. By surpassing 6000 runs in her career, she became the first Australian, male or female, to achieve this milestone. Fuelled by absolute class on the field, Perry’s bat has seen the ball travel to the boundary like a tracer bullet. The batters technique coupled with sheer elegance comes to be the perfect recipe for run scoring.

With her chunk of the runs being yielded out from the ODI’s which 3518 runs at a magnificent average of 50.2, the bowlers find it tough. In the seven tests she has played, the Aussie spearhead has scored two 100s and four 50s.

What’s even more impressive is that she has also taken 300 wickets in international cricket, making her part of a special group of cricketers like Imran Khan, Ian Botham, Wasim Akram, Jacques Kallis, and Andrew Flintoff.

The fast bowler’s impressive height and smooth-flowing action aids her lethal line and lengths. Her 300-wicket tally which was completed against India, back in 2020 at the Gold Coast is just a number. The 32-year-olds relationship with the leather lining will go down to be the greatest in the coming years. Currently standing with 38 wickets in tests, 162 in ODIs, and 123 in T20I’s she’s a batter’s worst nightmare.
