The COVID-19 has poorly impacted on cricket as many series and tournaments have either been postponed or cancelled. However, slowly things are coming back on the track. It all started with the England versus West Indies Test series.


Now, the domestic T20 tournament of Australia, Big Bash League (BBL) edition for both men and women is also all set to start from October later this year. It is indeed relieving news, especially for women cricket.

Meanwhile, Alyssa Healy, wife of Australian speedster Mitchell Starc, has lashed out at a user for a lousy post mocking her husband.


The user took a dig at Star for pulling himself out of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 to prepare for the T20 World Cup. Now, the mega showpiece event has been cancelled and the left-arm pacer will either play for his domestic team or might travel UK for the limited-overs series against England.

Healy responded to the post stating that the picture he used was when Aussie cricketer Phil Hughes passed away.



The user then apologized and said that it was a satirical post, but Australian women’s team opener wasn’t impressed at all. Healy said, “Satire is supposed to be funny. This isn’t.”

Speaking about Starc, he hasn’t played IPL since 2015. The New South Wales cricketer was scheduled to make his comeback in IPL 2018 after being bought by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for Rs 9.6 crore, but an injury during the South Africa Test series ruled him out of the lucrative league.

The 30-year-old paceman has only played two IPL seasons in which he has bagged 34 wickets. Starc has been away from competitive cricket since mid-March due to the global pandemic. He last took part in an international fixture in the ODI held between Australia and New Zealand, on March 13 in Sydney behind closed doors.
