Women's Player of the Decade
Meg Lanning, Tammy Beaumont, Harmanpreet Kaur, Susie Bates, Sarah Taylor, Deandra Dotttin, there are many phenomenal female cricketers on the planet right now, but none more so than Australia's linchpin, Ellyse Perry. An ODI average of 52 with the bat and just 24 with the ball is up there with the best ever, male or female. Her 7-22 against England earlier this year was instrumental in their win in that particular game, and her outstanding performances over the rest of the series helped secure yet another ashes victory for the Aussies. She is also a superb test batter, scoring a colossal 213* in the 2017-18 ashes. With a ridiculous batting average of 78 and bowling average of just 18, her batting-bowling average (B-BA) is a remarkable 60, up there with the best ever in any form of test matches. A 3 time world cup and t20 winner, Perry started playing for Australia at the age of 16! Furthermore she has played football for Australia, therefore becoming one of approximately 15 people to play football and cricket for their country.
