Ellyse Alexandra Perry (born 3 November 1990) is an Australian sportswoman who has represented her country in cricket and association football, debuting for both the national cricket team and the national soccer team at the age of 16. Perry is the youngest Australian to play international cricket and the first to have appeared in both ICC and FIFA World Cups. Gradually becoming a single-sport professional athlete from 2014 onward, Perry's acclaimed cricket career has continued to flourish and she is now widely considered to be one of the greatest female players ever.A fast-medium all-rounder, Perry's mastery of both batting and bowling disciplines is reflected in several statistical achievements—she was the first player to amass a combined 1,000 runs and 100 wickets in T20Is, she holds the record for the highest score by an Australian woman in Test matches (213 not out), and she became just the third player to claim 150 wickets in women's ODIs. Her participation in many successful teams at international and domestic level across cricket's primary formats has led to winning six world championships with Australia, eleven WNCL championships with New South Wales, and two WBBL championships with the Sydney Sixers. She has also been recognised with numerous individual honours, such as winning the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Award twice and the Belinda Clark Award three times, while being named as one of Wisden's Five Cricketers of the Decade: 2010–19.Due to her on-field performance, off-field marketability and stature as the "ultimate role model", Perry is credited as a leading figure for the rising female presence in Australia's sporting culture.
