The all-rounder injured her right hamstring while attempting a run out in the match against New Zealand to reach the semi-finals of the tournament.
Perry will remain a member of Australia’s 15-player squad and no replacement has been announced yet.
And though Australia is qualified for the semi-finals, the 29-year-old Perry will not be playing. She will also miss Australia’s tour of South Africa as well this month.
“Ellyse sustained a high-grade right hamstring injury,” said Australian team doctor Pip Inge.
“It is expected to keep her out of the game for a significant period of time.”
Australia fixed a spot for semi-finals and avoided an early exit from the World Cup with a four-run victory over New Zealand in Melbourne which knocked the Kiwis out.
Head coach Matthew Mott said of Perry: “She gives her absolute every time she takes to the field for her country and that was evident again against New Zealand in the selfless manner in which she threw herself into her batting, bowling and fielding performances.
The World Cup will definitely miss the presence of a star all-rounder Ellyse Perry. It would be interesting to see how does Australia perform now in the semi-finals to be held on Thursday, 5th March 2020.
