Ellyse Perry: Australian star who plays both football and cricket!

Modified 19 Feb 2013

Very few people know about Ellyse Perry. She is an Australian who has represented her country in two sports, cricket and football and that’s not the best part. She has played in the FIFA women’s world cup as well as the ICC women’s world cup!


The 22-year-old fast bowling sensation, has been playing for the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars Australian women’s cricket team since she was 16.

As a footballer, she plays as a defender and made her international debut just a week after her cricket debut.

Ellyse Perry scored with a marvelous chip for Australia in the 2011 women’s FIFA world cup but it was no more than a consolation as Sweden got a trio of fine goals from Therese Sjogran, Lisa Dahlkvist and Lotta Schelin.
