Alyssa Healy: ‘India showed us what we couldn’t quite do with the new ball’




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

When Meghna Singh beat Alyssa Healy‘s outside edge with her first ball in international cricket, during the first ODI in Mackay, India seemed to have discovered in her outswinger a key piece in their long-unresolved pace puzzle. With the newcomer’s skills complemented by Jhulan Goswami‘s ever-evolving mastery of movement and Pooja Vastrakar‘s new-found penetration, India’s pace resources had assumed an uncharacteristic measure of threat by the end of the ODI series.

The series has moved to Carrara, and the white ball has given way to pink, but India’s new-look pace attack has continued to test Australia’s highly rated batting line-up in their own conditions. They haven’t had too much by the way of Test-match-specific or pink-ball-specific preparation going into this game, but it doesn’t seem to have deterred them in the least.
