Healy's Secret Weapon for Bangladesh Series Revealed!

Healy Leverages Recent Experience for Bangladesh Series

Australian women’s cricket team captain, Healy, anticipates that the insights gained from the recently concluded Women’s Premier League (WPL) in India will be beneficial for their upcoming ODI series against Bangladesh.

With 10 Australian players from the ODI squad having participated in the WPL, Healy believes that their experience on India’s slow tracks could give Australia an edge.

The Australian team is set to kick off their white-ball tour of Bangladesh with a three-match ODI series, commencing on 21 March. More details about their squad can be found here.

Healy emphasized the value of their WPL experience, particularly on the Delhi wicket, which was slower and lower than what the Australian batting line-up is accustomed to.

She expressed confidence in her team’s ability to adapt to these conditions and continue scoring runs, even when the conditions are not in their favor.

Healy also noted the advantage of transitioning between tournaments and international cricket in the modern cricket landscape.

Despite having only faced Bangladesh thrice in international cricket, all during ICC tournaments, Healy views the upcoming tour as a unique opportunity for her team.

She expressed excitement at the prospect of playing against the Bangladesh team outside of World Cups, a rare occurrence for the Australian squad.

Healy acknowledged Bangladesh’s recent impressive performances, including ODI victories over South Africa and New Zealand, and series wins and draws against Pakistan (2-1) and India (1-1) respectively.

She stressed that Australia is not underestimating Bangladesh, recognizing their potential to pose a significant challenge in such conditions.

Healy highlighted the skill within Bangladesh’s bowling attack, particularly their spinners, which could prove challenging for teams not from the subcontinent.

She also noted the threat Bangladesh poses to many teams in the ODI Women’s Championship, praising their determination and the opportunity they now have to compete against the world’s top nations.
