RHB, Wicket-keeper

ABC Cricket - - PROFILES -

Ra­zor-sharp re­flexes and sen­sa­tional hand-eye co­or­di­na­tion make Alyssa Healy an ab­so­lute night­mare be­hind the stumps for op­pos­ing bat­ters. She is ca­pa­ble of tak­ing ab­so­lute blin­ders just when the bat­ter thinks she’s got­ten away with a cheeky snick. Known for her fam­ily links – un­cle Ian, hus­band Mitch Starc – Healy will con­tinue build up her own name this sum­mer. In June, she was named cap­tain of the NSW Break­ers after the re­tire­ment of Alex Black­well.
