Alyssa Healy recorded her maiden ton against India in the final match of the ODI series. She scored 133 runs in 115 balls which included of 17 fours and 2 sixes. She became the first wicket-keeper for Australia to score a century. Her innings took Australia’s total to 332 in 50 overs which is also highest total by Australia against India.

Mitchell Starc praised his wife on social media calling her a ‘bloody legend’. He posted her photo on instagram with a caption “Maiden 100. First ODI ton by an Aus women’s keeper. Highest Aus score v India. Not a bad days work! Bloody legend! #proudhubby.”

 

Meanwhile our chief editor did not refrain back appreciating her brilliant innings.

India women in pursuit of chasing the huge total were all out for 235 under 45 overs. Jemimah Rodrigues and Smriti Mandhana added 100 run partnership for the opening wicket but their efforts went in vain as Australia whitewashed India.
