Bio

Alyssa Healy progressed rapidly through representative ranks in New South Wales before making her debut for the Lendlease Breakers in the 2007-08 season.

Healy was forced to shelve her wicket-keeping gloves for much of her first two seasons,  allowing Healy to develop her top-order batting skills.

She settled in behind the stumps at the beginning of the 2009-10 domestic season, which proved to be a breakout season for her, recording her highest score of 89 not out and leading the WNCL in dismissals.

Healy was called into the national side for the 2010 Rose Bowl Series against New Zealand at the age of 19. 

A few months later she played every match in the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 in the West Indies and helped the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars take home the title.

On the 2012 tour of India, Healy posted some of her best international performances in the green and gold, including a career-best 90 in a T20 in Visakhapatnam.

Healy tasted further success with the Southern Stars later that year as part of a second-straight ICC Women’s World Twenty20 champion side in Sri Lanka. She was also a part of the team that hoisted the ICC Women’s World Cup trophy in India in 2013 and another third World T20 victory in Bangladesh in 2014.

After helping Australia win back the Ashes from England in 2015, Healy signed with the Sydney Sixers for WBBL|01.
