Australian all-rounder Ellyse Perry also became the first woman with the double of 5000 runs and 300 wickets in international cricket.

All-rounder Ellyse Perry became the first Australian woman to take 300 international wickets after she dismissed India’s Pooja Vastrakar on day three of the four-day pink-ball test on the Gold Coast on Saturday.

Perry sent off Vastrakar (13) in the 143rd over as Beth Mooney pulled off a stunning catch at gully.
