The World's Best Women's Cricket Player


‘Youngest’, ‘Only’, ‘Best’ - You don’t get very far into a description of Ellyse Perry’s career before the superlatives appear.

Not only is Ellyse the youngest ever cricketer, male or female, to have represented Australia, she is one of very few Australians to have represented her country in two different sports, and the only person ever to have played for Australia in both cricket and football (soccer) World Cups.

No wonder Cricket Australia, not short of high achievers to draw upon, calls Ellyse ‘arguably the best athlete in Australia’.
Ellyse’s many accolades include being named the ICC Women’s Cricketer of the Year in both 2017 and 2019, winning the ICC Player of the Decade in 2020- and three-times winning Australia’s prestigious Women’s International Cricketer of the Year (Belinda Clark Award) in 2016, 2018 and 2020.

In 2023, Ellyse became the first Australian to hit 6000 runs and 300 wickets in international cricket and became the first female cricketer to play 300 games for Australia. These achievements join a long list of records and ‘firsts’ that Ellyse has set in the sport.
