Australia goalkeeper Alyssa Healy has been ruled out of the upcoming three-match T20I series against Pakistan at home as she continues to recover from a calf injury. Healy suffered a calf injury during a recent tour of India. Healy, who served as Australian captain during Meg Lanning’s absence from Australia to India, will remain with the team for the series while she recovers from her injury.
A statement from Cricket Australia confirmed that The Australian wicketkeeper is expected to be available for the T20 World Cup in South Africa in February.
Australia earlier this week announced its T20I squad for the Pakistan series as well as the T20 World Cup. Australia named leg-spinning Georgia Wareham in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup squad after a long layoff through injury.
Wareham beat out colleague Amanda-Jade Wellington for a place in the squad, replacing Nicola Carey in the group that defeated India 4-1 in a T20I series late last year.
Australia will begin their World Cup defense on February 12 against New Zealand, ahead of group stage matches against Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and host South Africa.
Team: Meg Lanning (c), Alyssa Healy (vc), Darcie Brown, Ashleigh Gardner, Kim Garth, Heather Graham, Grace Harris, Jess Jonassen, Alana King, Tahlia McGrath, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Annabel Sutherland and Georgia Warham.
