The Australian women’s team won a phenomenal game against the Indian side earlier today, by 9 wickets. Wicketkeeper batswoman Alyssa Healy’s innings powered the side to a memorable chase. During the course of the match, Healy was seen speaking with the cricket experts over a walkie-talkie. A beautiful moment took place during the course of the conversation, when they asked her about her husband Mitchell Starc’s support during this period and what role has he taken in the camp. “Mitch has just come in and has become a part of the team. I’m really grateful that he’s here, the way he’s sacrificing some of his own training, and did four weeks of quarantine”, Healy expressed highlighting that her husband Mitchell Starc’s support has been amazing. She further added that the Australian pacer has become a part of the team, and was involved in the team session along with the Australian women.

Australian pacer Mitchell Starc joined wife Alyssa Healy earlier this month, ahead of the ODI Series against India, in Brisbane where the team was undergoing a hard quarantine. He joined his wife after completing his quarantine as he returned from West Indies and Bangladesh tours. The Australian cricketing couple was then finally able to see each other, before Mitchell Starc leaves for the T20 World Cup scheduled in October. Given their tight cricket schedules Healy and Starc would find it difficult to spend time with each other, even in normal ties. The COVID-19 quarantine protocols has further aggravated the issue and made it even more challenging.
Australia women lead the ODI series 1-0
Healy will next be seen in action in the 2nd ODI against India which is set to take place on Friday, September 24, 2021 at Ray Mitchell Oval, Harrup Park, Mackay. Given that the Australian side have secured a lead wining the 1st game of the series, they’d aim to keep the momentum going and continue to dominate the Mithali Raj-led India in the upcoming games as well. It’ll be interesting to see how the Indian side aims to make a comeback from here in the Australian conditions.
