WPL: RCB’s Ellyse Perry presented with broken car glass from TATA motors

WPL: RCB’s Ellyse Perry presented with broken car glass from TATA motors

During RCB-W's match against UP Warriorz, Perry's huge six over mid-wicket shattered a Tata Punch EV's window kept on the sidelines.

In a rather unusual way, TATA Motors chose to honour Ellyse Perry’s incredible performance in the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2024. When Perry struck a Tata Punch EV that was parked close to the boundary line at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, smashing its window, the company decided to celebrate the incident rather than just move past it by giving the star player a framed picture of the broken glass.

On March 4, during a tense match between Royal Challengers Bangalore Women (RCB W) and UP Warriorz, Ellyse Perry’s strong strike caused the ball to smash through the automotive’s window.

The 37-ball 58 scored by the Australian all-rounder not only astounded onlookers but also made a noticeable impression on the sidelines. Ellyse Perry made fun of her lack of insurance coverage for the incident after the game, but TATA Motors had a clever fix up their sleeve.

Following RCB’s triumph in the WPL 2024 Eliminator, TATA gave Ellyse Perry the artistically framed broken glass window that read “Courtesy PerryPowerfulPunch 04-03-24.”. This action transformed an unintentional moment of destruction into a special homage to Perry’s influence on the field.

However, Perry hasn’t only been making her mark on the WPL 2024 by smashing windows. Not just glass, but records have been routinely broken by the dynamic all-rounder. In the Eliminator match against the Mumbai Indians Women, she mesmerized the crowd once more with a 50-ball 66 and took 1/29 from her four overs. Her team won by holding the opposition to a modest 130 runs while defending 135.
