Brittany Perry has continued on from her fine country championships in 2017, hitting 110 in South Australia’s win over Western Australia in their first game of the 2018 Toyota Australian Country Cricket Championships.
Perry, 23, who plays for Northern Districts and SA Scorpions hit an array of fine strokes to make the first century since the women’s competition entered the country championships 3 years ago.
Perry’s innings allowed South Australia to reach the highest team score of the day of 5/185 and put themselves in a strong position with another win later in the day against East-Asia Pacific making 55 giving SA their first win over EAP since the competition began.
When asked about the importance of the tournament in being able to further develop her game, Brittany said she's hoping to keep building towards a WBBL contract in the near future and the country championships enables her to keep playing against some quality opposition from across the country and keep working on specific parts of her game. Perry said she's excited to be able to be part of the South Australian side and continue working hard for the SA scorpions post competition.
Here are some highlights of Brittany’s innings!
