Alyssa Healy has joined the chorus of Australian cricketers calling for more Women’s National Cricket League fixtures.
Healy’s NSW Breakers will host Queensland in the WNCL final at North Sydney Oval today, having finished a short and sharp season in which each state plays one another once on top of the table.
The six match regular season is half the length of the tournament Healy played when she first forced her way into the Breakers setup in 2007 and that is hurting the development of Australia’s next generation, according to the star wicketkeeper.
«When I first started we played 12 games — two against every state — and it was perfect,» Healy told the Herald. «Coming into this competition was the best way to learn how to play the game and to test your skills against the best players in the country.
