Perry to miss Australia’s WC game

Wellington, March 24 : Australia all-rounder Ellyse Perry will miss her side’s final round-robin match of the ICC Women’s World Cup due to back spasm. Kate Beerworth, Australia team physiotherapist, on Thursday said: “Ellyse came off the field with a back spasm, but it is settling down with treatment. She won’t play tomorrow (March 25) but we expect that she will be available for the semi-final.” Australia will take on the first-time competitor Bangladesh in their seventh match of the tournament on March 25. The two sides have never played an ODI against each other. The 31-year-old Perry was off the field for the majority of Australia’s fielding innings against South Africa on March 22 due to back soreness. The Australian camp had said “she was fit to bat but could not come in any higher position than No.7 due to the amount of time she spent off the field”. Australia have already cemented their place in the semi-finals and cannot finish lower than second position on the table.
