Ellyse Perry is the youngest person to represent Australia in Cricket. She is the first Australian woman to have appeared in both cricket and association football World Cups. She is in conversation with Namita Nayyar, President Women Fitness.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You must have been inclined towards sports in your younger age. You attended Pymble Ladies College, completing year 12 in 2008 with the title of Sports Captain, Athletics Captain, Soccer Captain and Cricket Captain. One of the pinnacle of success came when you became the youngest Australian ever to play senior international cricket when you made your debut in the second ODI of the Rose Bowl series at Darwin in July 2007 before your 17th birthday. Tell us about your journey in the world of cricket to where you are now?
Ms. Ellyse Perry: Sport has always been a huge part of my life and my family life. My earliest memories involved playing outside with my family and friends, learning how to kick, throw and catch. Sport and physical activity holds a very special place in Australian culture and society, and it is something that I have a strong affinity and passion for.
