“I just sleep with it next to me, and it’s a really good spooning partner at night, we’re pretty close, my bat and I,” Perry joked after her 112* powered Australia to a 151-run win. “Every now and then, I need to do some running repairs, and I’ve been trying to find something to make my bat a little bit lighter, which I haven’t been able to do. So I take it home and never do anything with it in the end.”

Australia women’s cricket team has claimed a series win 2-0 over West Indies after winning the Ashes Series last month in England. Australia plays the next match i.e 3rd and the final ODI on Wednesday against West Indies.
