Women’s WC final: Starc cheers for wife Healy as she hits ton to help AUS set 357-run target vs ENG

By H.JanGra April 4, 2022

Australia opener Alyssa Healy continued her superb form as she smashed 170 runs in the ongoing ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 final against England on Sunday (April 3).

It was run-a-ball hundred in a World Cup final for Healy, who also smashed a ton in the semi-final against West Indies

However, the 32-year-old batter shifted gears after completing her century as she accumulated 70 more runs in just 38 balls

Australia set a challenging 357-run target in the final.

Healy’s ton was special to her because her husband, who is none other than Australia men’s team pacer Mitchell Starc, was present in the stands to witness it.

As soon as Healy reached her hundred off 100 balls, Starc was seen applauding in the stands

Starc, who was last seen during Australia’s 1-0 Test series triumph over Pakistan last month, landed in New Zealand to support his wife

The pacer had even pulled out midway through Australia’s 2020 ODI series against South Africa to support his wife in the Women’s T20 World Cup final.

Having been unbeaten in the competition, the Aussies took the field as favourites as they would be determined to clinch a record seventh title.
