Healy Prepares for Challenging Conditions in Bangladesh

Australian skipper Alyssa Healy believes that the experience gained in the Women’s Premier League (WPL) will benefit her team in the upcoming series against Bangladesh. The series, likely to be played on pitches akin to those in the WPL, poses a challenge as Bangladesh is expected to exploit the low and slow wickets at home.

With seven players fresh from their WPL commitments, the Australian team expects to hit the ground running with minimal acclimatization needed. Healy emphasized the importance of the knowledge and experience gained from the WPL, particularly noting the conditions in Delhi, which were low and slow, traditionally not favoring the Australian batting lineup.

Healy Embraces WPL Experience for Bangladesh Challenge

“The nature of modern-day cricket is that you’re constantly jumping from tournament to international cricket, and vice versa,” said Healy. “So I’d say to an extent, it’s somewhat of an advantage coming from playing cricket.”

Regarding Bangladesh’s strengths, Healy highlighted their spin bowling attack and emphasized the need for Australia’s batting unit to counter spin and adapt quickly to the conditions.

Bangladesh skipper Nigar Sultana expressed her team’s determination to challenge the dominant Australian side following a drawn series against India. She noted that the series against India helped raise the team’s profile and individual players’ recognition in world cricket.
