Moment of the Year

Ellyse Perry, Double Century, Inaugural Day-Night Ashes TestThis sporting sensation created one of the most memorable moments of last year's Women's Ashes series when she notched up a phenomenal double century during the inaugural day-night Ashes Test at North Sydney Oval. The innings, aside from featuring brilliant stroke play and placement, marked the highest individual score by an Australian in Women’s Tests, including a record-breaking 213 not out. It also marked the third highest score ever, behind Pakistan’s Kiran Baluch (242) and India’s Mithali Raj (214). Since then, she’s led the Sydney Sixers to the top of the WBBL ladder, setting up a semi-final clash with Adelaide Strikers in late January. Both tournaments have seen a mix of TV broadcasts and live streaming, meaning the excitement around women’s cricket has never been higher. “Through TV coverage and local grassroots programs, kids will be exposed to more female sporting role models,” Perry says. “Seeing more women’s sport on TV is a huge deal for me and last year’s Women’s Ashes spurred huge interest in female cricket.
