North Sound: Australia all-rounder Ellyse Perry on Wednesday became the third woman cricketer to have scalped 150 ODI wickets.
The 28-year-old completed her 150th wicket in the third ODI against West Indies as she dismissed Reniece Boyce in her first over. She returned with the figure of 1-18 in her five overs.
Perry became the second-fastest to reach the 150 wickets landmark as she took 107 innings. While Australian Cathryn Fitzpatrick was the fastest to the 150-wicket landmark, achieving the feat in 91 innings, India’s Jhulan Goswami reached the milestone in 128 innings.
Goswami tops the chart of the leading ODI wicket-takers, as she scalped 218 wickets.
Australia won the ODI by eight wickets and clean-swept West Indies by 3-0. The teams will now play in the first T20I at Bridgetown on September 14.
