Australia Star Elysse Perry Ready to Make Comeback with T20s

Australia star performer Elysse Perry is all set to make her comeback with T20 Internationals in the coming months. The legend had a series of injuries that kept her out of the team since she was dropped in January ahead of Ashes. Here in this article, we talk about Elysse Perry comeback after her injury.

Elysse had been struggling with a hamstring injury that was followed by a back stress fracture that inhibited the 31-year-old from being part of the national side. She has been struggling to bat with a good strike at her batting number but has turned out to be a good bowler. Lack of all-around performance kept her away from being included in the Playing XI of the T20I side.

Elysse Perry in her recent interview talked about her recovery and showed keen interest in getting her place back on the T20I side. She said, “It’s sort of just a progressive one where I’ll keep getting it scanned in the lead-up to playing again, but so far it’s been going really smoothly, and touch wood that continues.”

She also talked about the growth of women’s cricket and the tough season ahead of the team as she mentioned “The depth coming through in the women’s side of the game is tremendous and that’s a wonderful thing for the whole squad, the whole group, It presents challenges for everyone to make sure that they’re continuing to evolve as a player. That’s very much the case for me. But yeah, I’d love to still be a part of that. Certainly, it’s working to make sure that I’m in that position.” “That’s very much the plan…to get back bowling and to full fitness. It’s sort of just when that happens over the summer is the biggest question mark at the moment.”

“Looking at our schedule coming up, with another T20 World Cup next year in South Africa, you always want to be involved in the big tournaments so I think we’re all looking at that.”

It is to be noted that Australia Women has a jam-packed season ahead of them as, In July, they will compete in a T20I tri-series in Derry against Ireland and Pakistan, ahead of their Commonwealth Games campaign. In December, Australia will play five T20I matches in India, followed by three home T20I matches against Pakistan in January, all ahead of the short-form World Cup in South Africa in February.

Overall, Perry believed that selection pressure was critical for an all-conquering Australian squad to maintain its vicious edge. “We want to keep pushing the boat out and then not get caught,” she said. “Because it’s certainly nice having success and I think once you’ve tasted it you don’t want to go the other way.”

We hope to see the legend on the field and winning matches for her team again!
