Elysse Perry has not batted in a T20I match for a year and two months. On Wednesday night, the boisterous crowd at the Brabourne Stadium may have wondered why she was dismantling an improved Indian bowling attack.
In the third T20I, the all-rounder helped Australia defeat India with a 47-ball 75 (9×4, 3×6). The visitors climbed into a 2-1 lead in the five-match series after avenging their rare defeat in Navi Mumbai three days prior.
Australia reached 172 for eight after Perry’s outstanding knock and a quick-fire 41 (18b, 4×4, 3×6) from Grace Harris. India lost by 21 runs after responding and scoring 151 for seven.
