Earlier, batting first Perth Scorchers set a target of 167 runs in their 20 overs. While chasing this, Sydney Sixers lost Alyssa Healy early in the second over of their inning. As wickets fell at the other end, Perry stood strong hitting shots all around the ground.
Hitting a boundary on the 4th ball of the 19th over, Perry completed her first WBBL hundred and took the team to victory.
A boundary – to bring up a ton – and seal victory.
Take a bow, @EllysePerry!

What a way to get it done!
