Ellyse Perry and her rise in the sports she is involved in has been a rather well-documented one. In recent times, she has been ranked as the number 1 all-rounder and number 1 batter in the ICC Women player rankings.
Also, in an interview when Perry was asked about her relationship with the sport and how she developed a love for the sport. She said that her father began teaching her how to play the game and she continued it watching the Australian teams play while growing up.
“I think it started for me just like most kids in Australia, in the backyard. I have got an older brother who played school cricket and I used to follow him around everywhere. My dad played a lot of cricket too so it all started there. Dad was teaching me how to play and then I think I just loved watching Australian teams play both Men and Women when I was growing up.”
Ellyse Perry’s Holi message for her Indian fans:
Holi, the festival of colour is all about fun, frolic, and merrymaking, as it’s a celebration of everything that’s lively and youthful. Indian festivals are diverse and it’s a joy to partake in every single tradition and custom related to them. One of the most important Hindu festivals, Holi is celebrated with much fanfare by the community, across the world.
While the world celebrates, Ellyse Perry took to Twitter to wish her fans on the auspicious occasion of Holi.
“Happy Holi to everyone in India and looking forward to leaving tomorrow for our tour over there! #Holi2018”, she tweeted.
