In a historic move for Women’s cricket in general but more so for Women’s cricket in India, BCCI announced the WPL. However, before the start of WPL, it wasn’t expected that the tournament would receive such huge success. It was one of the very first tournaments of its kind in India. After the halfway stage of the tournament, RCB vice-captain Ellyse Perry who has had a great experience playing in WBBL opened up on playing in India.

Ellyse Perry is undoubtedly one of the big names in Women’s cricket and a lot of young players across the globe look up to her. In addition to having experience in playing international cricket, the Australian all-rounder has been playing WBBL for a while now. The likes of Smriti Mandhana, Richa Ghosh, Renuka Singh, and all the other young players have a great opportunity to learn from the greats of the game.

It’s been very special says Ellyse Perry on playing in WPL

RCB posted a video on their social media where Ellyse Perry was seen having a candid conversation about her childhood, her love for cricket, her experience of playing WPL, and more. “It’s been very special. Just being a part of the first edition of any competition like this is amazing. But then you add to it being a part of an Indian domestic competition and just the scale. I think the game has reached its result with the WPL. It’s been so cool to sort of see that play out, the first year, and knowing the potential and possibility of where this competition is going to go. The fans are amazing. We have only played in Mumbai, and just have that many people come down and support the team has been wonderful,” she said.

After 5 consecutive defeats in the first 5 games, RCB has finally opened their account with much-needed 2 points. Ellyse Perry has been a key player for RCB with both bat and ball. RCB’s victory came against UP Warriorz. A brilliant over from Ellyse Perry to dismiss two set batters Deepti Sharma and dangerous-looking Grace Harris was certainly the turning point of the team. The Bangalore-based franchise chased down the target of 136 runs with the help of Kanika Ahuja and Richa Ghosh. They will next play against Gujarat Giants on Saturday, March 18.
