Ellyse Perry takes the game higher courtesy her massive talent, yet again!

“The women’s game is yet to reach the heights that the men’s game is already at.”
Is this a statement of fact? Or is this a massive bias that’s polluting the minds that are missing out big on the game, as a whole?
Regardless of who you are, the above can be understood in, either way.
To the self-titled critic of the sport, this may be another reason to whine and cringe and needlessly so.
God bless them.
Everyone has his place under the sun, so why not the ranter?
But to the real fan- who avoids highlighting the term Women’s cricket deliberately and seeks in it- a totality of expression, cricket can be found growing each day.
And perhaps that is where one needs to understand a differentiator; a question, whose time has come.
Is the game only growing due to the feats achieved in the men’s game? Or could it be that, in our usual excesses with this charismatic spectre, we are missing out on the feats that the ladies are bringing to this great sport of ours?

Despite knowing well that the question could spark a passionate debate, one which may seem infinitely long, it has to be submitted, cricketers like Ellyse Perry are re-defining perceptions.
How’s that?
Given her familiar streaks of record-breaking feats, it’s talents like Ellyse Perry who are drawing on from power and charisma- so naturally present in the women’s spectre- that the end result is simply unavoidable.
And lending her usual high-standards of consistency to a game’s format where having all-round performances is about as tough as curbing runs on a belter of a track, Perry’s touched the new ground for the women’s game.
In collecting a staggering 617 runs from 12 innings, Perry became a headline, a standard-bearer of T20 greatness, something like a punchline that reads: Ellyse Perry WBBL.
In the ongoing WBBL 2018-19, Ellyse Perry, the star all-rounder for the Sydney Sixers has actually constructed knocks that fashions sixes and boundaries as part of a red-hot run-scoring spree.
In so doing, she’s collected fluent fifties and a top score of 103 not out in a contest against Brisbane Heat. And what’s more, as the tournament is slated to continue for the next few weeks, who’s to know what Ellyse Perry may finally end up accumulating?

A brisk scorer, someone who attacks instinctively, Perry’s real strength doesn’t only stem from her batting, rather from her ability to channelize the other great craft she’s blessed with top-quality medium pace bowling. Thus far, Perry’s been among the wickets and her spells such as that 2-23 against the Scorchers, and that 2-for-11 against the Sydney Thunder have endeared her to her fans, once again.
