Why Ellyse Perry is RCB’s MVP

Why Ellyse Perry is RCB’s MVP

Ellyse Perry is an athlete and there are very few things she can't do. She is one of the world's best fielders and a threat to hitters trying to find the boundary rope. She has always had exceptionally effective batting and has even improved over time. In many ways, she is a soccer player. She bounced the ball off her feet to win Australia the Cricket World Cup and score the Matildas' goal in the FIFA Women's World Cup.

 

But it all started with the ball. Not only in his global profession, but as a young child. Perry was trying to achieve everything her older brother Damien, who was three years older, was doing. One evening in the home kitchen, he remembers their father Mark showing him the basics of bowling. "Oh, that's interesting, I'd like to know more," Perry said in an interview with the Royal Challengers Bangalore digital team last year, "then it spread to us going out in the backyard and dad just showing us how to do this whole motion to throw a cricket ball."

 

The adventure that began in that kitchen culminated in an incredible evening in Delhi where she bowled the biggest spell in the short history of the WPL and her storied T20 career, picking up 6/15 in a magnificent display of stump-to-stump seam bowling that propelled RCB into the play- off WPL. After her introduction as "far away, the G.O.A.T." in the video interview, Perry looks down at the ground and smiles shyly before shaking her head. While she may not feel good about receiving the accolade, it's hard to argue against what more than 22,800 people saw at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Tuesday night and in the years before.
