Perry was also involved in the first wicket of Hayley Matthews as she took a fine catch at square leg to end the Windies star’s stay in the middle.

The 33-year-old got the ball to nip back from the crease consistently to clean up four batters and trap two in front of the wicket to drain the life out of defending champions Mumbai, leaving them tottering at 82 for 7 in 13 overs. She hit the timbers of Harmanpreet Kaur, S Sajana, Amanjot Kaur and Pooja Vastrakar.

She kept on striking at regular intervals as Mumbai failed to recover from her wrath and were bundled out for just 113 in 19 overs. She picked two wickets each in 9th, 11th and 13th over to produce one of the best bowling spells in women’s T20 cricket history.

In her final over, Perry flattened the off stumps of Pooja Vastrakar (6) first and then deceived Nat Sciver-Brunt (10) with another inward seam delivery to complete a record six-wicket haul.
