Sydney Sixers wicket-keeper Alyssa Healy on Sunday wrecked havoc with her explosive knock against Melbourne Stars in Match 55 of the ongoing Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL). Healy slammed her fourth century in WBBL history.
Healy’s husband and Australian speedster Mitchell Starc was captured watching his wife thrashing the Stars’ bowlers to all parts of the world during a 179-run chase. Healy’s scintillating knock (111 off 52 balls) was laced with 15 fours and 6 sixes. She fell just three runs short of Ash Gardner’s record individual score.
