Sixers super star Alyssa Healy enters the momentous Women’s T20 World Cup Final on Sunday night, at the MCG against India, with an unrivalled record.

As a wicketkeeper-batter throughout the 11-year history of the Women's T20 World Cup, no player has scored more runs, claimed more dismissals or posted a higher score in a single innings.

During Australia’s third match of the tournament against Bangladesh, Healy passed England wicketkeeper Sarah Taylor for most runs and now has 677 at a strike rate of 127.49.

 

She struck 83 from just 53 balls at Manuka Oval, Canberra, the highest score by a wicketkeeper-batter at a Women’s T20 World Cup.

In that same match, Healy became the all-time leading wicketkeeper at a Women’s T20 World Cup and leads the way with 24 dismissals, including 12 catches and as many stumpings.

This tournament Healy has scored 161 runs at a strike rate nearing 144 again showing her world class on the big stage.
