Alyssa Healy Injury: Sydney Sixers Squad Adjustments for Sydney Smash [WBBL 09]
The Sydney Sixers have been forced to make a late change to their squad for this afternoon’s highly anticipated Sydney Smash against Sydney Thunder at North Sydney Oval. Unfortunately, a series of unforeseen setbacks has altered their lineup.
Injury Sidelines Alyssa Healy
Alyssa Healy, a key player for the Sixers, suffered a hand injury in a domestic accident at her home last night. As a result, she underwent surgery today to address the injury. However, specific details regarding the accident and the nature of the injury remain unclear at this time. Further updates on her condition and recovery will be communicated in due course. Notably, Alyssa Healy has not been replaced on the Sixers’ roster for this match.
Mathilda Carmichael’s Back Strain
In another blow to the team, batter Mathilda Carmichael sustained a back strain during yesterday’s training session. Unfortunately, this injury has rendered her unavailable for the upcoming match.
Gabby Sutcliffe Remains Unfit
Adding to the team’s challenges, bowler Gabby Sutcliffe remains unfit for play, further limiting their options for the game.
Emergency Inclusion of Frankie Nicklin
Given the unexpected setbacks and injuries, the WBBL Technical Committee has granted approval for the inclusion of 18-year-old Frankie Nicklin as the 13th player. However, Nicklin’s role is designated for use as an emergency sub-fielder exclusively for today’s match. It’s worth noting that Frankie Nicklin previously played one match for the NSW Breakers during last summer’s WNCL.
The Sydney Sixers will now face the Sydney Thunder with this revised squad, aiming to overcome the challenges and continue their pursuit of success in the WBBL.
