Belligerent wicketkeeper/ batsman, Alyssa Healy has recovered from her minor concussion and will likely be available for selection in the semifinals for Australia in their match against defending champions, West Indies at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua tomorrow.

Healy has been an integral part of the three-time champions’ outfit from the get go of the tournament, copping three player-of-the-match performances in the games she batted so far. In the final group match against India, Healy had suffered a minor concussion after colliding with another fielder in an attempt to complete a catch. As a result, she was taken off the field and did not bat as her side slipped to a 48-run defeat.

Healy’s availability for the clash of the titans was confirmed by teammate Rachael Haynes who was speaking to the media while workers at the venue were busy trying to get the ground and facilities prepared as they battled the rains that swept across the island…..
