Having debuted for both the national cricket team and the national soccer team at the age of 16, she is the youngest Australian to play international cricket and the first to have appeared in both ICC and FIFA World Cups.

A genuine all-rounder, Perry’s mastery of both batting and fast bowling disciplines is reflected in several statistical achievements—she was the first player to amass a combined 1,000 runs and 100 wickets in T20Is, she holds the record for the highest score by an Australian woman in Test matches (213 not out), and she was the third player to claim 150 wickets in women’s ODIs.

At the age of nine, she became friends with future Australian teammate Alyssa Healy, and the two played cricket together for many years. Perry is more commonly known by the nickname “Pez” because of the ill-fitting uniform she wore at junior level. Healy called her “Dags” because of the uniform she wore at junior level.
Perry was fast-tracked into the Australian team for a series in July 2007 against New Zealand, despite having never played a match at senior level. She made her One Day International debut in Darwin on 22 July at the age of 16 years and 8 months, becoming the youngest-ever cricketer to represent Australia. Taking two wickets for 37 runs from eight overs, her first scalp was Maria Fahey, whom she bowled for 11.

In her Twenty20 International debut at the Melbourne Cricket Ground against England on 1 February 2008, Perry “confirmed herself as a star for the future” through a “superb all-round performance” which included a late-innings knock of 29 not out from 25 balls before taking 4/20 off 4 overs to help Australia win by 21 runs.
