Ellyse Perry to miss WBBL openers match

Sydney Sixers Women is scheduled to play In the 1st T20I match against Melbourne Stars in WBBL 2023 on October 19 at North Sydney Oval. With the tournament set to begin on Thursday, the broadcasting and live streaming have been given to various media channels.

Ellyse Perry serves a one-match ban for a slow over-rate in last year’s final. The Allrounder has accepted the penalty that was handed to her during the final match in WBBL 2022 against Adelaide Strikers.

Ellyse Perry finished last year’s tournament as the 2nd highest run scorer with 408 runs in 13 innings and missed the top spot with 26 runs lag from Beth Mooney’s 434 run mark.

“It’s a really hard subjective measure sometimes to understand where time is gained and lost,” Perry said in Melbourne on Monday. “A large part of that is my management of the group in those high-pressure games.

“That’s something I can definitely learn from. It’s a bummer to miss the first game, but I was very much aware of the rules and it is what it is.”

Ashleigh Gardner will lead the Sixers for the opening match against Melbourne. When asked about her ban she said, “I don’t really have a handle on who the team to beat is,” Perry said.

“If you look at teams on paper, they’ve all got their different strengths and it’s really evenly matched across the board. It’s probably more who’s got the form and momentum throughout the competition,” concluded perry.

On this occasion, Big Bash boss Alistair Dobson said, “The competition runs with a set of playing conditions and rules around it,” at Monday’s season launch.

Sixers Charlotte Edwards said that it was a shame Perry missed out on the game but also excited to see Gardner gras her chance at captaincy.

“I’ve just been chatting to her today about Thursday’s game, and she’s thought a lot about it over the last couple of weeks and she seems really well planned and looking forward to it,” told Edwards.

“She said if we win, she might have to keep the job… I said you might need to speak to Ellyse about that. “She’s really looking forward to it and it’s a great opportunity for her.

“A couple of years ago she said she wanted more leadership experience and there’s no better place to do it than under Ellyse’s leadership,” concluded Charlotte Edwards.
