Mitchell Starc-Alyssa Healy Interview:

Alyssa Healy showed her witty side yet again. During the Australia vs. South Africa 2nd ODI, she playfully teased her husband, Mitchell Starc, for being overly critical of her teammate Kim Garth’s performance. Starc, who was commentating on the game, shared his thoughts on Garth’s bowling length with Healy, sparking the lighthearted exchange.

Starc said, “Saw the length of the opening pair there, Schutt (Megan) and Kimmie Garth. You reckon they could have bowled a fraction fuller with the help of the wicket. You got the catchers there for Garth… who bowled a holding length and really disciplined lines and length… but maybe a fraction fuller to get those edges.”

In reply, Healy said, “I think if we are being highly critical, like you are suggesting, then yes, potentially, then Kimmie Garth could have come maybe a fraction fuller but that is the natural length that she likes to hit and that’s her role within our team as well – to get the ball moving and to keep it tight down that end as well. So, yes if we are being ultra-critical then maybe.”

The chat between the couple brought lots of laughs in the commentary box, keeping fans entertained during the dull rain delay.
