Healy concussed in Australia's heavy T20 World Cup defeat

Healy concussed in Australia's heavy T20 World Cup defeat

It is learnt that Mithali Raj has now became India's highest scorer in T20I format (including men and women) with 2283 runs under her belt. Australia boasts of a number of match-winners in their side, especially the likes of opening batter and wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy, her partner Beth Mooney, all-rounder Ellyse Perry, besides the experienced duo of Megan Schutt and Elyse Villani. Her second half-century came in India's winning cause against Ireland.

Spinners, as has been the case so far in the tournament, were the wreckers-in chief for India picking up all nine wickets to fall between them.

Only Ellyse Perry produced a lone hand for Australia in her 100th T20 worldwide, hitting an unbeaten 39 from 28 to go with her 3-16 with the ball.

Ahead of the start of the match top-order batsman Smriti Mandhana asserted that the team is looking to continue with their dominant run.

With a semi-final awaiting on Friday against the victor of England and West Indies, Healy is Australia's leading run-scorer with 157 at an average of 78.5 and strike rate of 160.2. Healy fell straight to the ground but was able to walk from the field largely unassisted before later being diagnosed with a mild concussion.
