new Delhi. The fourth match of the 5 T20 series is being played between the women’s cricket team of India and Australia. In this match, India won the toss and decided to bowl first. But, it did not work for the team, as Australia, batting first, scored 188 runs at the loss of 3 wickets in 20 overs. For Australia, Alice Perry hit 72 runs in 42 balls. Apart from him, Ashley Gardner also played an inning of 42 runs.
At the same time, Captain Alyssa Healy was also seen in good shape. But, she got injured in the sixth over of Australia’s innings. Deepti Sharma was bowling this over. Australia’s captain Alyssa Healy hit a four on the fifth ball of her over. But, while playing this shot, his leg got hurt. After this the physio had to be called in the field. Hilli was in a lot of pain. He was having trouble walking. She somehow played the last ball of this over and then retired hurt and went out of the field. Later it came to light that he had strained his calf muscles.
Hilli retired hurt and returned from the field
At the time when Hilli got hurt, at that time she had scored 30 runs in 21 balls with the help of 6 fours. However, due to injury, she had to return to the dugout and later it was learned that she was ruled out of the entire match. In her place, Beth Mooney took over the wicketkeeping and vice-captain Tahila McGah took command of the team. There is suspense about playing even in the 5th match of the hilly series. If she does not play the fifth match, then Litchfield can be an opening option in her place.
She has started the innings for Sydney Thunder in the Women’s Big Bash League. Healy is the second Australian player to be injured on this tour, before that Jess Jonassen was also ruled out of the series last Sunday due to a hamstring injury.

After the T20 series against India, Healy has to play the Women’s National Cricket League in Australia as well as the domestic 50-over tournament. At the same time, from January 16 next year, Australia has to host Pakistan’s women’s team. 6 white ball cricket matches are to be played between the two countries.
