Australia women's team wicket-keeper Alyssa Healy, on Monday, became the ninth player to appear in 100 T20 Internationals when Australia beat Sri Lanka by nine wickets to take a 2-0 lead in the three-match bilateral series.

The 29-year-old is only the second Australian to achieve the feat after Ellyse Perry, an ICC statement said.

Healy achieved the milestone during the second T20 International against Sri Lanka at North Sydney Oval.

Healy has been one of Australia’s top players in recent times and was also named the ICC 'T20I Player of the Year' last December. Since the 2017 50-over World Cup, she has scored more runs in limited-overs cricket than any of her Australian teammates.

 

Healy made her T20I debut as a 19-year-old in February 2010. She was the 'Player of the Series' in the previous edition of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup.

Australia is also scheduled to host India and England in a tri-series before the T20 World Cup.
