England all-rounder Ellyse Perry Joining in for World Cup campaign
Ellyse Perry was away from the game for a long stretch due to multiple injury issues.

Top Australian women player Ellyse Perry injured her hamstring, elbow and groin leaving the game’s circuit for a while. The all-rounder is back to the team and she believes the injury issue is now far behind. Women World Cup 2017 starts by the latter half of the month and team Australia is strengthening its stature. As Perry is among the top players in team England, injury concerns came up as a serious issue. She will be undergoing a five-week training program in Queensland, which is expected to make her fit enough for the world tournament.

The 26 years old cricketer said, she had a lovely break. She is now refreshed and feels great as well. She expressed, “It's been nice to have this time up here (in Queensland) uninterrupted to do a bit of training.” For the cricketers, it was a long break off the game. Her comeback will be on the most crucial tournament of the team, making it critical. The player, however, is confident enough to get back in form. She acknowledged her absence from the game. Perry said, she did not “play a lot of cricket in the last little bit” but she is hopeful after a series of intense practice matches.

Undergoing the practice sessions, she will have a gauge of her own stance on the game. The player focused on shots, selection of shots, and also the type of deliveries she will play. Perry will also learn “where and when is the right time to put the foot down and up in scoring” in the training session.

The condition in England is considered proper for seam bowlers, which fits Perry’s description in the trade. As a bowler, she will leverage her pace with good seam movements in the tournament. Per the allrounder, in major competitions, there should be a well-balanced bowling unit. The combination of pace and spin should be well balanced even if spinners have a greater impact. Especially, over bowling in England, she said it is important for pace bowlers to step up.
