In a post on X, the WBBL franchise, Sydney Sixers confirmed the news, addressing that the player has already undergone a surgery in her right hand and is progressing well.

“Healy is progressing well following her surgery, however, a return during WBBL 09, including finals, is not possible,” the statement read. It also added that she will be closely monitored by the CA and CNSW SSSM team as her return to play will take shape over the next few weeks.

“This is not the news I was hoping for because I love playing in the WBBL and I love the Sydney Sixers,” Healy stated. She further added that her focus will be fully on recovery.  “I’ll continue to spend time with the Sixers squad and offer any help I can to help the team and the club thrive for the rest of the competition,” she added.

However, the injury has now put her doubtful for the India tour, set to take place from 21 December till 9 January. Notably, the Australia Women will tour India for one Test match, followed by three ODIs and three T20Is, later this year.
