Perry reflects on significance of WT20WC final

Star Australia all-rounder Ellyse Perry said she has no regrets missing out on the ICC Women's T20 World Cup final because the game bore a significance far greater than any individual or team.
The final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground was a grand spectacle with 86,174 people packing in to see hosts Australia take on India. The crowd was the biggest for a women's sporting event in Australia and the second-biggest to grace a women's sporting event in the world.
While Australia went on to win their fifth title in the absence of the injured Perry, the all-rounder feels that the importance of the final and how it promises to enhance the future of the women's game was the biggest aspect of the night.
"Personally it was poor timing and I would have loved to have played in the rest of the tournament, absolutely without a doubt. But at the same time, it's not about me," Perry told cricket.com.au.
