On the fourth and final day of the Women’s Ashes Test, a lovely moment took place between Mitchell Starc and Alyssa Healy.
Starc, who was present at the Australia dressing room, was seen having a chat with his wife Alyssa and then the two shared a donut together.
The official broadcaster 7Cricket has shared a video of the same on their Twitter handle and captioned it as ‘Cute’.

Meanwhile, in the match, England were able to hold their nerves after suffering a batting collapse in the final hour of play. Australia needed three wickets in the last three overs while England were 15 runs short of the target.
Debutant Alana King first inflicted a run-out and then took a brilliant catch to bring Australia close to victory. But England, somehow, managed a draw with one wicket remaining. Australia and England will now take on each other in a three-match ODI series that is scheduled to begin from Thursday, February 3 in Canberra.
