ELLYSE PERRY is one of our best and most unflappable athletes - but she found herself out of her comfort zone doing her first Jockey underwear shoot. ''I was lucky that Giaan Rooney was there to help me through it a bit; she's done this a few times before,'' Perry told Danny Weidler from Fairfax Media. ''I would definitely say that I am not a natural at this.'' The underwear company has pulled the right model in Perry, who is regarded as one of Australia's most marketable athletes and recently made a US annual ranking of the 50 most marketable athletes in the world. Perry and the rest of the women's cricket team fly to England to play in the Ashes - and hopefully they can perform better than the blokes. ''We spend a fair bit of time with the men's team,'' she said. ''Mitchell Starc comes to quite a few of our games because he is dating Alyssa Healy. And Michael Clarke is very supportive; he will write a letter to us and offer support in other ways.''
