Bumrah or Kohli? Who would Elyse Perry prefer to bat or bowl against?

Australian women’s team’s premier all-rounder Ellyse Perry is one of the most talked about cricketers in the modern day. Perry has been a key figure in the Australian women’s team triumphs across formats and has been a real asset with both the bat and ball for Australia. She was recently hosted for a chat by Sony Sports India in which she was a few quick questions.

With majority of the cricketing events being put on halt due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, quite a few cricketers have made their presence felt on social media. Players have also engaged with audience through Instagram live sessions in which converse with one another while engaging with the fans as well. During a live session on Instagram, Perry was put the spot when asked if she would prefer bowling to Indian captain Virat Kohli or facing Indian fast-bowler Jasprit Bumrah.

While Virat Kohli has consistently stuck with his claim  as a modern-day great, Jasprit Bumrah is one of the best finest bowlers in the world at this very moment. Nevertheless, Perry mentioned that she would want to bowl to Kohli rather than facing Bumrah. The Aussie women’s star was asked seven questions in the rapid-fire segment called ‘Would you rather challenge’.
