On Wednesday, the Hobart Hurricanes women were playing the Sydney Sixers women and Ellyse Perry was on a song with the bat. She played a knock of an unbeaten 70 runs, supported by Alyssa Healy on the other end who scored 39 runs. Perry smashed 4 fours and 4 sixes. Literally.
She finished with an unbeaten 70 off 56 as the @SixersWBBL beat the Hurricanes by 39 runs 👏

A six smashed off the last ball of the innings went out of the park and hit the St John ambulance parked nearby, wiping it out. The ambulance windscreen was hit and got quite a few cracks. The ambulance officers were enjoying Ellyse’s innings at that time and couldn’t take timely action. “Obviously parked too close”, a twitter user (@vonoviedo) joked.
In an incident in the 3rd edition of WBBL back in December 2017 when the Sydney Sixers were playing Melbourne Stars, Ellyse’s shot had hit a young boy’s head in the audience and the game was stopped for Ellyse had to go check on him. The ball was deflected, hitting the chair before it hit him.
Sydney Sixers went on to win the game by 39 runs and are on the 3rd spot on the points table while Hobart Hurricanes have gone seven matches without a victory this season, being second-last on the table.

Uh oh😬💥@EllysePerry hit a six out of the ground to finish the Sixers innings today in Launceston and this poor ambulance copped the brunt of it. Might be a hard one to explain to the boss 📸: @SixersWBBL #WBBL05 pic.twitter.com/YU5fN0S7Be
