VIDEO: Sarah Taylor & Ellyse Perry could not stop laughing on the unusual incident at North Sydney Oval

Australia’s star all-rounder Ellyse Perry became only the seventh woman to hit a Test double century as the Aussies took control of the day-night Women’s Ashes Test match against England at the North Sydney Oval.

The 27-year-old Perry made an unbeaten 213 as Australia declared on 448-9, taking a first-innings lead of 168.

England’s openers survived to finish on 40-0 at the close of play.

Well, ahead of Perry’s maiden double hundred a very unusual incident took place. In amongst the emotions, there was a moment of confusion which left Perry and England wicket-keeper Sarah Taylor laughing.

When Perry was batting on 194 with only one wicket in hand, she launched off-spinner Laura Marsh to the wide mid-wicket rope and immediately celebrated her 200.

However, fans on the boundary indicated it was a four, with replays later confirming the ball bounced before crossing the rope.

Here’s the video:

The next over Perry made sure she reached 200 with a powerful drive off Sophie Ecclestone straight back down the ground.
