Australian cricket power couple Mitchell Starc and Alyssa Healy showcased their playful banter during a recent ODI between Australia and South Africa. The video of their lighthearted exchange has taken the cricketing world by storm, offering a glimpse into the humorous dynamic shared by the duo.
In the clip, Mitchell Starc, known for his lethal fast bowling, took on the role of an unofficial coach, offering tactical advice to Alyssa Healy. Starc, in his friendly yet cricket-savvy manner, suggested adjustments to the line and length of Australia’s opening bowling pair, specifically focusing on Kim Garth.
Starc humorously remarked, “I feel Kim Garth can bowl a fraction fuller to get an edge. She is bowling a holding and discipline line, but don’t you think if she pitches it up, there is a chance of getting an edge?”

In response, Alyssa Healy playfully roasted her husband, injecting humour into the situation. With a witty retort, she said, “If you are being highly or ulta critical, yes, she can. But that’s her natural line and length. She has to keep one end tight, and that’s what her role is in the team.”
The charming exchange not only provided entertainment for cricket fans but also highlighted the couple’s ability to balance their professional commitments with lighthearted moments on the field.
