Good to end with some momentum: Ellyse Perry after her innings

Ellyse Perry with her innings also became the holder of the orange cap in WPL 2024. She spoke about her innings and admitted that they had a difficult outing with the bat. She, however, was optimistic about doing well with the ball. She stated after the first entry:

Really a good opportunity for us to have some solid ball skills. Conditions similar to previous days, remaining a little low. It’s a bit cliché, but I think the key will be to focus on the stumps.” she concluded.
