In 2009–10, Ellyse Perry, the 21-year-old bolwing sensation from Australia,  took 22 wickets and scored 148 runs as New South Wales won the Women's National Cricket League (WNCL) again.

 

She made debut as a 16-year-old, both in cricket and soccer. 

 

Perry is the youngest person, to represent Australia in cricket and the first Australian woman to have appeared in both cricket and association football World Cups.

 

Eventually she was fast-tracked to make her debut for Australia in One Day Internationals (ODIs) against New Zealand in 2007.

 

Perry rose rapidly in the Australian team. She played for New South Wales in the U-19 interstate tournament in January 2007. In three matches she scored 74 runs at 37.00 and took three wickets at 13.66 as her state won all three matches.

 

She has 54 wickets from 39 ODI matches.
