"I'm a little bit shocked, given how many amazing performances there have been across the year," said Perry, who also won the award in 2017. Perry also was voted ODI player of the year. Her teammate Alyssa Healy was voted women's T20 International cricketer of the year for the second season running.
Healy set a women's T20 record in October, when she scored an unbeaten 148(asterisk) off 61 balls against Sri Lanka. The wicket-keeper batter reached her half-century off 25 balls and her century off 46, for the fastest hundred ever by an Australian man or woman.
