Australia Women went on to win their fourth Women’s WT20 title at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium today. It couldn’t have been more fitting for the Meg Lanning-led team to receive the title from the legend himself. While the encounter was purely one-sided, the English side would have surely rued upon their decision to bat first here. The likes of Alyssa Healy, Beth Mooney, Megan Schutt have all contributed significantly to Australia’s WT20 campaign.
However, all-rounder, Ellyse Perry deserves a special mention. Constantly finishing games for Australia and taking nine wickets at an average of 9.89, Perry was absolutely stupendous. She spoke about the whole tournament and how the team unit had awaited this day since long.
Hopefully, this win inspires a lot of boys and girls back home
Usually, teams set their sight on an ICC tournament in advance. Perry stated that their hard work of two years had finally come off. She was all praise for her skipper Meg Lanning and Cricket Australia (CA) as well. Further, she hoped that the tournament win will inspire many youngsters to take up the sport Down Under.
“This has been a long 24 months of working really hard and to have it come off tonight was absolutely awesome. But it’s been a wonderful tournament, we’ve had so much fun. It’s been a pleasure watching Meg throughout the tournament bat but everyone across the board has contributed. Hopefully inspire lots of boys and girls back home to play cricket,” she told according to www.perthnow.com.au.
We have got the easy job, going out and enjoying ourselves on the field
Ellyse Perry refused to admit that it was difficult for the girls out there. She asserted that the whole team had relished taking up the challenge. In fact, they had worked towards playing a different brand of cricket and inspiring everyone around. Perry also lauded the fantastic dressing room atmosphere and cherished the journey.
“I don’t think it’s been tough at all. It’s actually been a huge pleasure to take on this challenge. We’ve done a lot of things to improve our game and take on a different brand of cricket. Hopefully, it’s been really inspiring to people watching it. We’ve got the easy job, going out and enjoying ourselves on the field with a great group of girls who are all really good friends. So it’s been a wonderful journey for us,” she added.
