Australia women’s highly-rated and talented all-rounder Ellyse Perry struck a jackpot, running riot to earn the awards for ICC’s Test, ODI, T20I cricketer of the decade. Ellyse Perry, who made her international debut back in 2007, has risen to become one of the most valuable cricketers for her side. The ICC took to its official Twitter handle to announce the 30-year old as the winner.

The decade saw Ellyse Perry muster 4349 runs and pick up 213 wickets, including being part of Australia’s squad that won the T20 World Cup four times and clinching the 50-over edition in 2013. The New South Wales-born cricketer was unfortunate not to feature in this year’s T20 World Cup final due to injury.
