She was once again one of the Lend Lease Breakers’ leading bowlers with eight wickets in the Twenty20 competition at an average of 17.50, and best figures of 3-12. In the 50 over competition she took 13 wickets, the most in the competition, at 9.23. Her 5-11 against the ACT were also the best ever figures achieved by a NSW bowler in the WNCL.
She was selected for the Australian team to play New Zealand and England but in a rare occurrence, she was dropped for one of the Twenty20 internationals against England. However, she bounced back in the one-off Ashes Test, taking four first innings wickets in the team’s victory.
Perry also took on the boys last summer, playing for Sydney’s Poidevin Gray Shield (U/21) team for one round. She opened the bowling and took two wickets in her four overs, with her appearance helping to raise money for the McGrath Foundation.
