Ellyse Perry Smashes Bowling Records In Australia’s Clean Sweep Of The Women’s Ashes
An astounding spell of new-ball bowling from Ellyse Perry in Canterbury has handed Australia a Women’s Ashes ODI clean sweep.
In taking 7/22 from her 10 overs, Perry set a new benchmark for the best figures by an Australian in women’s ODIs and gave her side a valuable clean sweep heading into the Test match.
England fell a mere 195 runs short of their 270 target, capitulating for just 75.
Earlier, after the first two matches of the series ended in tight Australian victories from run chases, England opted to send the visitors in once they won the toss.
Despite the early loss of Nicole Bolton, run-a-ball innings from Alyssa Healy (68 off 66) and Meg Lanning (69 off 68) put Australia in a commanding position until they both fell via ugly dismissals to Nat Sciver (3-51).
Healy holed out to Danni Wyatt at deep midwicket for 68 from a half-tracker, the type of ball she clouted to the boundary numerous times in her knock.
Lanning, comfortably looking in the best touch she has this tour, was trying to guide a ball to the legside when she hit a leading edge to Fran Wilson at point.
Sciver completed a triumvirate of big wickets when Ellyse Perry (7) nicked behind attempting a cut shot.
Australia struggled to find any rhythm after this point with Beth Mooney (19) trapped in front by Kate Cross (1-55), Rachael Haynes (12), caught and bowled by Sophie Ecclestone (1-50) and Ashleigh Gardner (29) bowled by Laura Marsh (1-50).
Jess Jonassen (24) and Delissa Kimmince (18) were the not out batters, and although it appeared 7/269 was slightly under what Australia was expecting at the halfway mark, it proved to be more than enough.
Australia now has nearly two weeks until the Test against England begins, with a three-day match against the England Academy beforehand to gain some valuable red-ball preparation.

After the recent announcement that the W-League will now become the A-League Women, we spoke to the sport’s biggest stars on how this world-leading announcement serves to influence up-and-coming players, and why this commitment to the women’s game is a necessary one.

The race, which will begin on 24 July next year just as the men’s Tour de France ends, is a milestone in the sport, one many believe will boost the profile of women’s racing significantly.
