Alyssa Healy loves the big stage.

The Sydney-born wicketkeeper-batsman rose through the ranks in New South Wales before making his debut for the Lendlease Breakers in the 2007-08 season.

He was forced to lay down his wicketkeeping gloves for most of his first two seasons, allowing him to develop his top-order batting skills.

Healy settled behind the stumps at the start of the 2009–10 domestic season, which proved to be a breakout season for him, with his highest score of 89 not out and leading the WNCL in dismissals.

Healy was called up to the national team at the age of 19 for the 2010 Rose Bowl series against New Zealand. A few months later she played every match in the ICC Women's World T20 in the West Indies and helped Australia to the title.

During the 2012 tour of India, Healy posted some of his best international performances in the green and gold, including a career-best 90 in a T20 in Vizag.

Healy tasted further success with Australia later that year as part of their second straight ICC Women's World Twenty20 Champions team in Sri Lanka. She was also part of the team that won the ICC Women's World Cup trophy in India in 2013 and another third World Twenty20 in Bangladesh in 2014.

His WBBL career took off after helping Australia win the Ashes from England in 2015, signing with the Sydney Sixers for the inaugural edition.

In 2018, Healy was named the ICC T20 Player of the Year for his outstanding performance that led his nation to its fourth ICC World T20 title.

In 2020, Healy was man of the match in Australia's T20 World Cup final against India at the MCG.

And in 2022, he soared to even greater heights, scoring 170 against England to lead Australia to a World Cup victory in Christchurch.

Later that year, he was appointed Australia's vice-captain following the retirement of Rachel Haynes; She then became the seventh woman to captain Australia in T20Is for Meg Lanning on the tour of India.
