Ellyse Perry smashed the first century of her outstanding international career to cement her position as a giant of Australian cricket.
It’s the first Test hundred on Australian soil since 2003 and the first by an Australian since 2013.
Perry, the world’s number 1 all-rounder, has made 28 international 50s but had never made it to triple figures, until today’s landmark moment in the ongoing Women’s day-night Test at North Sydney Oval.
That moment when you bring up your maiden Test century 🙌
Well batted, Ellyse Perry 👏
