Alyssa Healy Joins Elite Club, Becomes Fourth Woman to Play 150 T20Is


Alyssa Healy, the captain of the Australian women’s cricket team, achieved a significant milestone by becoming the fourth woman in history to play 150 T20 International matches. This feat was accomplished during the third and final T20I match between India and Australia at the D.Y. Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.

Healy’s inclusion in this exclusive club places her alongside other distinguished players, including her arch-rival and Indian captain, Harmanpreet Kaur, who has played 160 games. New Zealand’s Suzie Bates follows with 152 matches, while England’s Danni Wyatt has 151 appearances.

The Australian wicketkeeper-batter took over the reins of the team as the full-time captain following the retirement of Meg Lanning. Despite battling a few injuries, Healy has maintained impressive form, amassing 240 runs in 11 innings during 2023 at an average of 32 and a remarkable strike rate of 133.75. Her consistent performances have been crucial for the team as they prepare for the upcoming T20 World Cup in Bangladesh, scheduled for September.

Healy’s achievement underscores her resilience and commitment to the sport, setting a high standard for women’s cricket globally. As she continues to lead her team with determination, her contributions both on and off the field are sure to inspire aspiring cricketers around the world.

This landmark moment in Healy’s career serves as a testament to her skill, dedication, and passion for the game, further solidifying her status as one of the most accomplished players in the history of women’s T20 cricket.
