Alyssa Healy Takes Sly Dig At Mitchell Johnson After He Criticises Mitchell Starc

Mitchell Johnson slammed Mitchell Starc for his performance in the recently-concluded first Test against India. The Australia pace spearhead looked far from his best as he struggled throughout the game to get his rhythm.

India won the game by 31 runs to pile more misery on Starc. Chasing an improbable 322, Australia looked all but out of the game after being reduced to 187 for 7. However, the likes of Starc, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon put up a great fight to revive the hosts’ slim chances. But eventually, India managed to bowl out the Aussies and take a one nil lead in the four-match series.

“I just don’t like his body language,”  Mitchell Johnson said in commentary for ABC radio.

“He hasn’t given a bit of a glare or puffed his chest out with a good follow through, let the batsman know he’s in the contest, that he’s going to rip the pegs out.”

However, the criticism has not gone down well with Starc’s wife and Australia women team’s star Alyssa Healy.  And in order to make herself clear, she took a dig at Johnson after the latter tweeted following the game.

“Congratulations to India. Loved Australia’s fight to the end, need to move on quickly from this loss & prepare for Perth which is a quick turn around,” wrote Mitchell Johnson.

In reply, Healy while tagging Starc cheekily wrote:

“Will your preparation be getting grumpy?”

But before things could go out out of control, Johnson brought the situation under control by writing:

“Love you guys.”

It all ended well as Healy posted:

Meanwhile, Australia and Starc would look to bounce back when the second Test gets underway on December 14 in Perth.
