Australia all-rounder Ellyse Perry took her 300th wicket in international cricket in all three formats of the game on Saturday. As a result, Perry is now the first female cricketer to achieve the double of 5,000 runs and 300 wickets in international cricket. The 30-year-old achieved the feat when he dismissed Pooja Vastrakar in the 143rd over of the ongoing pink-ball Test against India at the Carrara Oval in Queensland. In ODIs, Perry has 3,135 runs with 152 wickets to his name. Whereas in the shortest format, this all-rounder has 1,243 runs with 115 wickets.

After playing some positive cricket in the first two days of the pink-ball Test, the Indian batsmen surprisingly went into the shell on the third morning as the Mithali Raj-led side crossed the 350-run mark against Australia in the opening session.

On the dinner break, India were 359/7 with Deepti Sharma (58*) unbeaten at the crease.

Ellyse Perry dismissed Pooja Vastrakar (13) in the third ball of the 143th over and the umpires called for a dinner break.
