Women's T20 World Cup

'We're driving a cultural shift' – Alyssa Healy excited for the future


Alyssa Healy, the Australia wicket-keeper and batter, is delighted to be at the "forefront" of change, which has seen women's sport, especially women's cricket, be embraced around the world.

Healy, who was Player of the Tournament in the recent ICC Women's World T20 2018 in the West Indies, insisted that her generation was lucky to be involved in the sport at an important time in its history.

"That's one of the most special parts of our careers at this moment, that we're building something special for girls not only this country (Australia) but around the world," she told ICC Cricket 360.

'We're building something special' – Alyssa Healy
The Australia wicket-keeper chats about her evolution and a special 18 months for Australia and women's cricket.

"To see the way that everyone's embraced women's cricket over the last 12 to 18 months – there's no better time to be playing women's sport in this country and especially women's cricket. We're right at the forefront of that and we're really driving that cultural shift in the country," she said.

With the ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020 to be held in Australia, the thought of defending their title in front of home crowds was an exciting one, Healy added. As for her own performance in the previous edition: "It's something I'll look back on at the end of my career and be proud of," she said. "I've really cashed in on some form that I've found. Hopefully I can maintain that!"
