Video: Healy says spectacular run out just a fluke

It's lucky Alyssa Healy was wearing magenta on Monday night otherwise she might have been mistaken for a Harlem Globetrotter.

Such was the freakish ability she showed to run out Brisbane Heat batter Holly Ferling at Drummoyne Oval in the Sydney Sixers second match of WBBL|02.

Along with fellow magenta representative Jordan Silk, the pair have combined to nearly break the internet on numerous occasions.

In the final ball of the Heat's innings on Monday, Ferling jammed a ball out to midwicket and both batters decided to take on the arm of Sarah Aley in the deep. Despite it being a slightly wayward throw, Healy grabbed the ball out of the air and, with her back to the stumps, flicked the ball blindly and found the stumps.

And it was the run out that set tongues wagging and had social media going crazy.

After the game, Healy was modest about the piece of magic she produced.

"Fluke, fluke, fluke," Healy said after the Sixers 8 wicket victory.

"Obviously it was a bit of a wild throw from the deep so I just jumped up and tried to get it near the stumps as best as I could.

"The previous ball I nearly missed with an underarm throw close to the stumps so to get that one was a pretty good feeling".

Healy is the top female wicketkeeper in Australia and is the incumbent in the Southern Stars side for both the One Day Internationals and T20 International sides.

And she showed her talents last night, even if she won't admit it.

Along with Healy's heroics behind the stumps, where she executed two run outs and a stumping, the Sixers were dominant as the Heat were only able to post 9/83 from their 20 overs.

The Sixers romped to victory on the back of a sublime and mature innings of 45 not out from 43 balls by captain Ellyse Perry. The Sixers eventually collected an 8 wicket victory with 25 balls to spare to open up their WBBL|02 account and exact revenge on the Heat.
