Australia’s Ellyse Perry is considered to be one of the greatest cricketers of all time. She played her first international match in cricket in 2007.
She is an all-rounder and has broken several records. In 2019, Ellyse became the first player to score 1000 runs and take 100 wickets in Twenty20 International cricket during the Women’s Ashes, said a report.
Apart from cricket, Ellyse is also an established soccer player. She began playing at the age of 16 and was a part of the Sydney FC squad.
“A lot has evolved and changed in women’s sport in the last 10 years – particularly football and cricket. So, I think my timing, in terms of being able to play both for a while, was fortunate.
And now being a full-time professional athlete in one sport has been incredible,” Ellyse Perry said during an interview.
The 29-year-old athlete has modelled for various brands and has also appeared on the cover of several fashion and beauty magazines. “I really love what I do, and sport is such a huge part of my life. I feel very fortunate to be in the position I am, where I wake up every day excited about what I’m doing,” she added.
