Aus W vs Ind W Test – Alyssa Healy


The Australian opener was full of praise for the screenings of Jhulan Goswami, Meghna Singh and Pooja Vastrakar

When Meghna Singh defeated Alyssa Healy’s outer rim with her first ball in international cricket, at the first ODI in Mackay, India seemed to have discovered a key piece in their long-unsolved tempo puzzle in her outswinger. With the newcomer’s skills complemented by Jhulan Goswami’s ever-evolving mastery of movement and Pooja Vastrakar’s newfound penetration, India’s tempo resources had assumed an unusual degree of threat by the end of the ODI series.

The series has moved to Carrara and the cue has given way to pink, but India’s new pace attack continued to test Australia’s highly regarded batting formation in their own circumstances. They didn’t benefit too much from a specific test match preparation or pink ball in this game, but it doesn’t seem to have put them off in the least.
