Healy, leading for the first time in place of Meg Lanning, who is on an indefinite break, helped Australia get off to a quick start after they were asked to bat. She raced to 30 off 21 balls, hitting six fours in the process. On the penultimate ball of the powerplay, she moved well across to the off side and pulled Deepti Sharma to the square leg fence. That is when she appeared to have tweaked her calf.
Healy was seen hobbling and, after some attention from the physio, decided to carry on. However, a ball later, she was unable to pinch a quick run, which is when she decided to walk off. Not long after that, she was ruled out from further participation in the game.
After the series against India, Healy was due to play the Women’s National Cricket League, the domestic 50-overs competition in Australia. From January 16, Australia are scheduled to take on Pakistan at home for a six-match white-ball series starting with the three ODIs, which are part of the ICC Women’s Championship cycle.
