Alyssa Healy

Alyssa Healy (T20 cricket) is a mainstay of the Australian team since making her international debut in February 2010 against New Zealand, and the explosive wicketkeeper/batter has developed a reputation as a big-game player. Her highest score of 148 (not out) against Sri Lanka in 2019 is the third-highest in T20 internationals – and the best by a player from a top-tier nation – and in September 2020, she made her 92nd  dismissal, breaking the record for the most dismissals by a wicketkeeper, male or female, in T20 internationals. She has also played in six T20 World Cups since 2010. Despite growing up in a cricket family – Rachael’s father Greg was part of the Queensland state squads and her uncle was renowned Australian wicketkeeper Ian Healy – Rachael was initially indifferent to the sport. She took it up after her family moved to NSW, moving through the state junior ranks before making her senior debut in 2007/08. She was a batter for the first two seasons, then took up the keeping role in her third season. She married Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc in April 2016 and her brother-in-law is Brandon Starc, who won gold in the men’s high jump at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
