Beth Mooney has had a tough start in the year as she was injured just days before the first match against England. She was hit on the jaw while batting in the nets because of which she fractured her jaw and had to go for surgery. Cricket Australia announced that she is ruled out of the Ashes and her availability for World Cup would be confirmed only after her surgery.

Beth Mooney is currently the number one ranked T20I batter and also in the top 10 batters in ODIs in the world by ICC rankings. In her career, she has hit 2 brilliant T20I centuries and has an average of 43.45 in ODIS with 2 centuries and 9 half-centuries. She has been in brilliant form last playing in WBBL where she was also the highest run-getter scoring 528 runs, averaging 52.80. This brilliant performance of her eventually led her team to win the championship.

Going off these good and consistent performances, she was confident going into the Ashes series. Australia was going to heavily rely on her batting against a strong England team. This injury is a huge loss to the team. It was devastating to hear about her injury and a lot of questions were raised about your availability for the World Cup.

However, Beth Mooney did not give up. She was seen in the nets again. This is the sign of a true warrior. It must have been very disappointing for her to miss out on an important series after anticipating playing in it for a long time. However, she is back on her feet just 2 days after the surgery. Now that she is ruled out of the Ashes, her sole focus would be to recover so that she would be able to play in the upcoming World Cup. She is a match-winner and Australia would want her to be in her best form. She too would make a comeback in the World Cup and help her national Team defend their title.
