Dual international Ellyse Perry has barely set foot back in the country from Australia's victorious women's cricket World Cup campaign and already she's got plenty on her plate.

Perry and her fellow Southern Star teammates returned home on Thursday after securing a record-breaking sixth World Cup title with their 114-run victory over the West Indies in Mumbai.

The champion squad had a couple of days to celebrate in India, with plenty of support from an adoring public and members of the men's cricket squad, who sent accolades on social media.

"To be world champion, and to be alongside my teammates, that's why you play cricket," all-rounder Alex Blackwell told reporters at Sydney airport on Thursday.

The rest of the team will have a well-deserved break before heading back to training for an upcoming tour of England in August, where they'll be out to defend their Women's Ashes title.

But there might not be any rest for the multi-talented Perry, a senior Australian representative in soccer and cricket, who will be juggling university as well.

That's not to mention her first priority — consulting doctors about the extent of an injury that almost cost her a place in the tri-title winning squad.

"It's something I've been battling with over the last three months or so and it's a workload thing in terms of the way ... I bowl," Perry said.

"But it's nothing too major. I don't think it will be something too serious down the track."

The injury means Perry will miss a Matildas camp this week in Canberra but she's hoping to be back for subsequent camps with new coach Hesterine de Reus taking over the reins of the national women's soccer team.

The decision to play the cricket World Cup tournament cost Perry the W-League soccer grand final, which conflicted with the Southern Stars' first match.

The dual international said she didn't regret her decision and cheered on her W-League winning teammates at Sydney FC after learning of their victory from Mumbai.

"I would have loved to have played in the [W-League] final but, obviously, the way things have worked out this season has been fantastic and I owe a lot of that to the support I've had from both Sydney FC and Cricket [Australia]," Perry said.

How Perry continues to juggle both sports will be determined after talks with de Reus.
