Cricket World Player of the Week - Alyssa Healy

 

For her Player-of-the-Match-winning knock in the T20 World Cup final that capped off a golden run, Alyssa Healy is the Cricket World Player of the Week.

"You can't wipe off the smile from my face," Alyssa Healy beamed as she received the Player of the Match award.

Healy, who was the Player of the Tournament in the previous World Cup, received the award for her 39-ball 75-run knock in the final against India. Her innings set the tone for the hosts as the wicketkeeper and opening batter clobbered 7 fours and 5 sixes in the innings which took the steam out of the Indian bowling attack.

To add to that, she began with another impact in the second innings as well with a lovely take of Shafali Verma behind the wickets on the very third ball of the Indian innings, which further pushed Australia to the front.

Healy also ended as the second-highest run-scorer of the tournament with an exceptional strike rate of over 150.

For a player who was out of touch before the beginning of the tournament, it has been some turnaround for the the Queenslander.
