Watch: Delighted Mitchell Starc Applauds After Alyssa Healy Scores 48-ball Ton In WBBL

Sunday (November 22) was a special day for Australia star Alyssa Healy. The 30-year-old scored a stunning century to power Sydney Sixers to a fine win over Melbourne Stars at the North Sydney Oval in the ongoing Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL).

Alyssa Healy smashed the fourth-fastest century in the history of the WBBL, reaching her hundred from just 48 balls. She was eventually dismissed via a run out after scoring 111 from 52 balls with the help of 15 fours and 5 sixes.

The wicketkeeper-batter was just three runs short of the all-time highest score of 114 runs. She is now the owner of four of the five highest scores in the WBBL after scoring four centuries in the tournament. She came out all guns blazing as Sixers needed something special to progress ahead.

The Sixers needed to chase the Melbourne Stars’ innings of 178 from 19 overs in order to make it to the finals. Alyssa Healy and Ellyse Perry fired on all cylinders and guided their team to 150 for no loss in the 15th over before the latter’s dismissal resulted in a top order collapse. In the next ten deliveries, the Sixers lost 4 wickets for six runs.

They failed to chase down the total inside 19 overs and eventually crossed the line with two balls to spare. It wasn’t enough for the Sixers to jump the Scorchers into fourth spot.

As far as Healy is concerned, the day was special for her on a personal note. She not only scored a stunning century but did it in front of her husband and Australia men team’s pace spearhead Mitchell Starc. The pacer was seen applauding his better half after she touched the 100-run mark.

Here is the clip showing Mitchell Starc applauding Alyssa Healy:
