Sixers show support for drought relief

13 August 2018

Sydney Sixers WBBL stars Alyssa Healy and Tahlia Wilson gathered in Tamworth last Wednesday in support of the ‘R U Aware We Care’ drought relief campaign.

Healy and Wilson took a break from their busy pre-season schedules to help regional communities raise much-needed funds.

Healy said it was important to bring the impact of the drought to the attention of cricket fans and the broader community.

"It's been an amazing last few days at Country Blitz, it’s been great to get out to all the areas and see all the smiling faces,” Healy said.


“It’s great to see the community get involved and finishing here in Tamworth trying to raise some funds for struggling farmers has been a lot of fun”


Healy said she is looking forward to the season ahead and has been satisfied with pre-season so far.


"It’s been really good­­– the pre-season has been solid," she said.

"We're looking forward to getting into some games soon and a big summer of cricket leading into the Big Bash."


With the Women’s World T20 finishing late November, there is a quick turnaround for our reigning WBBL champions– however, Healy is confident in slotting back into the competition.


"We will adjust pretty quickly, its been similar the past couple of years where it’s been only a week inbetween. So it’ll be an adjustment but one we will get back into pretty quickly,” Healy said.


“Hopefully the WBBL squad will welcome us with open arms."
