Ellyse Perry has been ruled out for the rest for the Women's T20 World Cup.
Australia's worst fears were confirmed on Tuesday with team officials announcing the hamstring injury Perry picked up against New Zealand on Monday would force her out of Thursday's semi-final at the SCG and a potential final on Sunday at the MCG.

Australian coach Matthew Mott added: "Ellyse is a key member of our squad and has been for a long period of time and on a personal level we're disappointed that she won't have the opportunity to finish the tournament.
"She gives her absolute all every time she takes to the field for her country and that was evident again against New Zealand in the selfless manner in which she threw herself into her batting, bowling and fielding performances.
"We're confident that we have enough depth in the squad to cover her batting and bowling and know whoever gets an opportunity will make a strong contribution."
Perry will remain a member of Australia's 15-player squad, despite the injury, which will also rule her out of a tour to South Africa later this month.
