After taking over from Meg Lanning as captain?

Alyssa Healy- I am very happy for this achievement but it is very difficult to replace her. Meg has been very successful as a captain and as a player and we all know this. It will be very difficult for me to replace him. If asked from my point of view, I have got a very good opportunity and I would like to perform well as captain for my team.

It would be very important for me to take on this role full time and I am completely ready for this challenge.

Alyssa Healy’s plans regarding captaincy

Alyssa Healy: As a captain I have no ego at all. This is not a dictatorship. I am not here to tell everyone how to play. I just want to tell the upcoming players the importance of the game and learn a lot from the senior players. There are many excellent young players who will perform very well for the Australian team in the future.

Many people have captained their respective teams in domestic cricket also. I encourage everyone to raise their voice for themselves. This is very important if the team has to remain successful in the coming 10 to 15 years.

What did you learn from WPL?

Alyssa Healy: The Women’s Premier League opened my eyes to what it’s like to be an Indian cricketer. We used to come here and play against the Indian team like the Australian team. With the Women’s Premier League came a new identity as men’s and women’s cricket. We also get to learn a lot from Indian players.

What is the cultural difference between India and Australia?

Alyssa Healy: We love sports in Australia. We don’t think too much about just one game. We love our athletes a lot. Cricketers are considered celebrities in India and Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana are billboards. Seeing all this has opened my eyes.

What would you like to say about the big bid for husband Mitchell Starc in IPL?

Alyssa Healy: I was in the gym preparing for the Test match at the time of the auction. It was a bit of a surprise to me when such a big bid came in on them. This was really a huge amount. According to Stark, this is very good for him. Starc has not played IPL for the last 8 years and this will be a new experience for him. He would also like to play his role well.
