Sydney’s consistent star performer, Alyssa Healy has recently signed an extension by which she continues to be with the franchise, Sydney Sixer, in Women’s Big Bash League till the end of 2022.
It has been a productive week for the 29-year-old, who managed to take out the championship at Sydney’s Long Reef Golf Club before flying to Perth for a pair of WBBL matches at the WACA Ground over the weekend.
Alyssa Healy, 29 years old, made her debut for Australia in 2010 and has helped the side like a warrior since then. The talented wicketkeeper-batswoman said she had no intention of playing elsewhere. Part of the allure was being able to mentor the fresh wave of talent starting to flow through the system,
‘‘It was a fairly easy decision to re-sign with the Sixers and hopefully have another three successful years. It never really crossed my mind to go anywhere else. It was an easy call to stay and help with the group of young kids coming through. Hopefully, they will take over when a few of us have had enough,’’ Healy said.
Healy recently made a world record by smashing a century in T20 against Sri-Lanka unbeaten 148, being the best score in T20 across male or female cricket. She is undoubtedly talented and best in the business, has inspired girls all around the globe to look up to sports.
