When Ellyse Perry is on song with the bat, look out. Literally.
A St John Ambulance found out first hand what sort of damage the Sydney Sixers star can do with the willow in hand.
Perry crunched an unbeaten 70 in the WBBL clash against the Hobart Hurricanes on Wednesday as the Sixers jumped to second spot on the ladder.

The Australia allrounder's dazzling innings also saw her smash the windscreen of an ambulance that had clearly parked too close to the ground to be out of Perry's hitting zone.
The 29-year-old crunched 4 fours and 4 sixes, including one massive hit that cleared the stands and wiped out the ambulance.

Perry took her season tally to 351 runs at an eye-popping average of 117, as the Sixers beat the Hobart Hurricanes by 39 runs at Launceston's Invermay Park.
The captain's knock off 56 balls propelled the Sixers to an imposing 2-172 from their 20 overs before they skittled the Hurricanes for 133 in 18 overs.
Aussie internationals blow away Hurricanes
Perry was well supported by opening partner and fellow Australian international Alyssa Healy (39), who got the Sixers off to a flyer.
Ash Gardner (28) and Burns (26no) also ensured the momentum never slipped.
The Hurricanes lost three wickets in the first four overs of their response and never threatened to recover.
Captain Corinne Hall (31) and Fran Wilson (29) did their best to resurrect Hobart's cause with a 63-run fourth-wicket stand while South African Chloe Tryon (19) was typically aggressive.
But the hosts' lower order crumbled, with the last five wickets falling for just 18 runs.
Erin Burns (3-5) came on and mopped up the tail after Marizanne Kapp (2-18) had caused havoc with the new ball for the Sixers.
The Hurricanes have gone seven games without a victory after starting the season with successive wins while the Sixers, who started the day in sixth spot, now only trail leaders Adelaide on percentage.
