Star all-rounder Ellyse Perry scored his first ever double hundred in the one-off women ashes test against England. She remains not out on 213.
After winning the toss, England women captain Knight decided to bat first. Opener Winfield only scores 4 runs but then Beaumont and Knight take the score to 129. Beaumont score brilliant knock of 70 runs and Knight score 62 runs. But then no other England batswomen capitalize that start and England lose their wickets on the regular interval. England was bowled out on 280 runs. For England Perry takes 3 wickets while Scutt, McGrath, and Jonassen take two wickets each.
In response, Australia starts well but the hero of the inning was all-rounder Ellyse Perry who, after her brilliant performance in the bowling department, score his first ever double hundred in test match cricket.

Perry holds the one end and plays her shots all over the ground and because of his brilliant double century, Australia takes important 168 runs lead in their first inning.
There is still more than 2 days game left in this test match and Australia is in very comfortable position with a first-inning lead of 168 runs. Now the pressure is on England batswomen to save this test match and the trophy.
