Perry stars again; SPORTS SHORTS CRICKET.
ELLYSE PERRY was again England's tormentor as Australia moved a step closer towards retaining the Women's Ashes by closing on 265-3 in the only Test between the sides.
Perry took 7-22 as Australia clinched a whitewash victory in the one-day part of the multi-format series earlier this month, and the all-rounder's patient 84 not out put her side in the box seat at Taunton.
On a sluggish pitch, there were also half-centuries for Alyssa Healy, Australia captain Meg Lanning and Rachael Haynes, who put on an unbroken 105 alongside Perry.
England are trailing 6-0 and needing all four points on offer for the Test win to stop Australia retaining the urn.
