Perry adds to impressive resume picking up 100 Twenty20 international wickets!
Perry notched the feat as the Australian women’s cricket team underlined its status as one of world sport’s most dominant outfits, cruising to an eight-wicket victory over England to claim the T20 World Cup for the fourth time.
Perry becomes just the second player – male or female – to pick up 100 international wickets after the West Indies’ Anisa Mohammed.
It comes just a week after Perry became the first Australian to pass 100 international T20s, while she became just the second Australian woman to play 200 internationals across all formats earlier this summer.
She is also ranked fifth on the all-time running score lists for Australian women in T20s and seventh in ODIs.
Perry finished the World T20 with nine wickets at 9.88, having claimed 2-2 against the West Indies in the semi-final before she picked up her 100th scalp with an inswinging lbw to get rid of in-form Natalie Sciver.
After losing to England in the semi-finals of the inaugural competition back in 2009, the Southern Stars claimed the World T20 crown in 2010, 2012, 2014 and now 2018, with only an upset loss to the West Indies in the 2016 final preventing a quintuple streak of titles.
