Canberra Times – Australian cricket star Ellyse Perry has backed the points system used during the women’s Ashes to be introduced in other series.

Summary

  • Australian cricket star Ellyse Perry has backed the points system used during the women’s Ashes to be introduced in other series.
  • This format is used only during the Ashes but Perry, who claimed the Belinda Clark award on Monday night as the best women’s player of the year, said there was merit in a wider adoption.
  • “I think against some of the other major nations in the world, potentially that’s a possibility going forward, that we might play more and more of those kinds of series because they have been really successful in the Ashes and they have brought to light a really great competition that includes all three formats of the game which are really relevant to women’s cricket.
  • They have played some wonderful cricket in the past 12 months, a finalist in the World Cup in England last year, and since then have continued to play some really great cricket,” Perry said.
  • It remains unclear whether captain Meg Lanning will take part in that series, for her resumption from a serious shoulder injury has been delayed.
