Ellyse Perry missed her century by one run (PC: AFP)
New Delhi.Ellyse Perry must be proud of herself on the first day of the Ashes Test match, then she must be in pain as well. Perry must be proud because he handled Australia after a poor start and it was a painful day because the new bowler did to him something that had never happened before in his 16-year career. Actually Australia’s team got down to bat first. The start was very bad. In the form of Litchfield and Beth Mooney, there were 2 setbacks for 83 runs.
After this, Parry took over the innings and shared a 119-run partnership with Tahila McGrath. McGrath got out after scoring 66 runs. After McGrath’s dismissal, Parry was trying to form a partnership with Jess Jonassen, but he could not get along at the other end. Jonason was dismissed for 11 runs. Alyssa Healy ducked after him. Australia had lost their 5 wickets for 226 runs.

Parry out on 99 for the first time
Although the good thing was that Parry was resting on one end. She had also reached very close to her century. On the 5th ball of the 60th over of Lauren Filler, who made her debut for England, Parry reached 99 runs by hitting a four. She was just 1 run away from her century, but what Filler did after that, the pain of that is going to last for a long time. This had not happened before in any format of cricket with Parry, who made his international debut in 2007.
Parry missed the third century
Actually, after hitting a four on the filler ball, she wanted to complete the century on the next ball. He played a sharp shot towards the gully, where Nate Seaver was brunt. He did not make any mistake and took a great catch. With this, Parry’s innings was also stopped by Filler for 99 runs. Parry got stuck on 99 for the first time in his long career. She missed her third century in her 11th Test.
