Cricket World Player of the Week - Alyssa Healy
Sydney Sixers may have fallen one step short of semi-final qualification in the Women's Big Bash League 2020 but that takes nothing away from Alyssa Healy's sensational 48-ball ton.
In their last group match of WBBL 2020, Sydney Sixers had to win by a ridiculously big margin to make it to the semis. However, when they could not bowl out Melbourne Stars for a partly total and conceded 178, it became almost impossible.
The team was always chasing their tail from there on as they needed to overhaul the target in just six overs for their net run rate to allow them a semi-final spot. While that was not to be, the fans were treated to some breathtaking shot-making from Alyssa Healy.
In her typical style, Healy began her innings with a six off the first ball and went on to crunch 111 runs off just 52 deliveries at a brilliant strike rate of 213.46.
During her stay at the crease, Healy smashed 15 fours and 6 sixes. She added 150 runs with fellow opener Ellyse Perry in just 14.1 overs.
Healy's century came off just 48 deliveries, which is the fourth-fastest in the history of the Women's Big Bash League.
Her dismissal coincided with a phase in the game when Sydney Sixers lost four wickets within just eight deliveries. The Sixers still managed to get over the line and finished their WBBL 2020 campaign on a high, despite falling just short of a semi-final spot.
