Mitchell Starc is a name that many batsmen fear, but there is one batsman who is surely in love with the Australian pacer.

Mitchell Starc’s wife Alyssa Healy on Sunday smacked a century against India in the bilateral ODI series. Healy hit 17 fours and 2 sixes to score 133 runs in 115 balls at a strike rate of 115.65 for her maiden century. She also became the first wicketkeeper to score a century for Australian Women.

Her maiden century was applauded by her husband and Australian seamer Mitchell Starc. The pacer shared an image of Healy on Instagram. The “proud hubby” described his wife as a “bloody legend” in his post. 
“Maiden 100. First ODI ton by an Aus women’s keeper. Highest Aus score v India. Not a bad days work! Bloody legend! #proudhubby” he wrote in the post.

On the back of her innings, Australia went on to post the mammoth total of 333/7 in 50 overs, their highest ever against India.

Mitchell and Alyssa tied the knot in April 15, 2016. The couple met when they were nine-year-olds during a match. According to Cricket Australia, They were playing against each other in the Northern District Junior Cricket Association. The two later shared wicketkeeping duties in a U-11 team which was coached by Starc’s father Paul.
