Alyssa Healy Takes Hilarious Dig At Men’s Cricket For Playing In Crowdless Stadium

Alyssa Healy, who played the role of a sheet anchor, in the women’s T20 World Cup final against India took a hilarious dig at men’s cricket after the first One-Day International (ODI) between Australia and England on Friday was played in a crowdless stadium due to coronavirus scare.

The step taken to play the ODI series between Australia and New Zealand behind closed doors is taken as a precautionary step to withstand the novel coronavirus.

It was a contradictory and rare show as Australia and New Zealand are playing in front of empty stadium while more the women’s T20 World Cup was witnessed by 86,714 spectators at a packed house at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

After a Australia journalist took to Twitter to write, “In hindsight, the fact they got 86,714 to the G on Sunday night was miraculous timing. One week later and it would have been 0”.

Healy instantly responded to the tweet by saying, “It’s been a week of us feeling what it’s like in the men’s shoes and them in ours!! Haha”.
