Alyssa Healy, the wicketkeeper for Australia Women, will not play in any of the three T20I matches against Pakistan because she is still recovering from a calf injury she sustained on the team’s recent tour of India.
Healy is anticipated to be available for the upcoming T20 World Cup in South Africa in February, according to a statement from Cricket Australia. Additionally, she will stay with the team throughout the series as she continues her recovery.
