On Saturday night, Alyssa Healy, Captain of the Australian Women’s Cricket team was rushed to hospital after picking up the bizarre injury to the right index finger caused by her two Staffordshire bull terriers when she put her hand between her two dogs as they were fighting.

She is hopeful of being fine for Australia’s tour to India after Healy’s injury. “The positive sign is there is no bone damage, tendon damage or fractures,” Healy told reporters in a video news conference from her home about Healy’s Injury “That’s the best news possible.”

“I think there was an artery affected which probably made it look more like a crime scene than necessary. It was quite a bloody scene. When I pulled my finger out at first, I thought I was in strife. But luckily it’s all gone smoothly at the moment.”

Thunder young gun Phoebe Litchfield said on Fox Sports’ The Blast about Healy’s Injury:

“I actually didn’t know until I turned up today, so I hope she’s fine. It just sound like a pretty vicious dog attack, and I don’t know if this is public”

Healy will meet with surgeons again on Thursday and hopes to have a clearer picture of Healy’s injury by then.

Having captained Australia through the most recent Ashes and the series against the West Indies, Healy is expected to return to the Deputy role if Meg Lanning returns to the country in India. If neither is available, Tahlia McGrath will likely take the reins.

Healy’s injury is to the index finger opposite to the index finger that was broken twice in June and July during Australia’s tour of England and Ireland.

Otherwise, Glenn Maxwell’s hopes of restarting his test career in India this year ended when he slipped and broke his leg at a party, while England wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow suffered a same injury on the golf course last year.

Healy joked that she might create a group chat to deal with there issues. But may be more important is to sort problem with her dogs.

“The good news is we’re still friends,” Healy said “Last night we all sat on the couch together and discussed the situation and we were all fine.”

The Sixers will look to find a replacement for Healy, with teenager Kate Pelle out of action in Sunday’s loss to the Sydney Thunder.
