Australia cricketing superstar Ellyse Perry has confirmed that she is on track to return to cricket early next month. The Aussie all-rounder was away from the game due to a shoulder injury she had during the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL).
Ellyse Perry is on her way to start playing again. Perry, who had injured her right shoulder while fielding during WBBL this year, said that her shoulder is recovering well on SEN radio on Thursday.
Perry was an integral part of team Sydney Sixers and was a match-winner for them. Her exclusion from the game during the latter part of the league due to her injury did not augur well for her team as the Sixers failed to reach the semifinals for the first time in the history of the tournament.
Perry is likely to make debut for her new state Victoria who will face Western Australia at Junction Oval on January 7 as part of the Women’s National Cricket League.
As reported by cricket.com.au journalist Laura Jolly, Perry was positive about her shoulder. “It should hopefully be fully fit by the time we have our next lot of games early in the new year with 50-over domestic cricket,” she said.
Perry’s recovery can lead to her potential debut for Victoria as well as her coming back to represent Australia in the T20I tri-series against England and India. The tri-series will start off in late January and will be a lead up in the Southern Stars’ preparations for the upcoming T20 World Cup at home.
