Australian cricketer Alyssa Healy is confident about taking her game on another level when women cricket resumes in Australia. Healy said she has been working really hard during the lockdown and also practised a few new things.
The 30-year-old batter has maintained a mind-boggling strike rate of 154 in T20Is from the last two years for Australia. But Healy said she is aiming to add complete 360 dimensions to her game and develop more shots in her range.
Australian women will against the White Ferns in the upcoming series and Healy has promised to display a “different and new” show during the series.
“I actually did sit down with my batting coach and we discussed a few different things we could work on.. not necessarily jump up another level, but prepare as best as I could for this New Zealand attack, and you might see some different things from me in this series,” she said.
“I’ve driven all the bowlers a little aggro over the last two weeks trying a few things in the nets, so we’ll have to wait and see if they come out in the game; I’m not sure if I’m confident enough to do it yet, but the ultimate goal in cricket is to be able to play 360 (degrees), and for me, there are some areas I’m not quite hitting, so I’ve been trying a few things to see if I can get the ball there,” she added.
Australian women’s team will play three-match T20I series and as many ODI matches series from September 26. The matches will be played at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane and it will also mark the return of women’s cricket in Australia.
