Australia star all-rounder Ellyse Perry smashed an unbeaten 213 against England to put her side in a strong position at North Sydney Oval, Sydney.

Well, the inaugural day-night Ashes Test will forever be linked with Perry after she scored the highest individual score by an Australian in Women’s Tests.

Perry’s incredible 213 not out broke the record of Karen Rolton, who made 209 not out against England at Leeds in 2001.

The 26-year-old brought up the record in style, launching a six over cow corner off teenage left-arm spinner Sophie Ecclestone to the roar of the buzzing North Sydney Oval crowd.

Australia declared at 9-448, and with a lead of 168 runs and just over one day’s play remaining a draw appears the likely result.

Fans present at the stadium and also on Twitter lauded Perry’s superb innings.

Here are some of the best Twitter reactions:
