Since meeting as nine-year-olds on a cricket pitch, when the pair were giving trials for Sydney’s Northern District Cricket Association, the love story between Healy and Starc has been nothing short of a fairytale. The pair tied the knot in April 2015 and have been together for seven years now.
Starc, who recently led Australia’s men to a 1-0 Test series win in Pakistan, had flown to Christchurch to be with his
Notably, while Starc is the highest wicket-taker in a single edition of the men’s ODI World Cup (27 wickets in the 2015 WC), Healy also became the highest run-scorer in a single Women’s WC. Healy ended with 509 runs to her name in the 2022 World Cup, becoming the first women’s player to breach the 500-run mark in the tournament’s history.
Australia bossed their way to a record-extending seventh Women’s World Cup title with a crushing 71-run win over traditional rivals England, stamping their undisputed dominance in the tournament after a breathtaking hundred from Alyssa Healy in the final on Sunday.
Playing the innings of her life, Healy put England’s attack to the sword with a sensational 170 off 138 balls that powered Australia to a massive 356 for five. Defending champions England needed something more than special to pull off the record chase but kept losing wickets throughout the innings, which ended at 285 in 43.4 overs.
Healy, who was dropped on 41, toyed with the English attack in her mesmerising knock, which is now the highest-ever individual score in a World Cup final between men’s and women’s cricket.
