Australia’s Alyssa Healy sets new Guinness World Record

Australia’s star wicketkeeper-batter Alyssa Healy set a new Guinness World Record for ‘highest catch of a cricket ball’ at MCG, during the promotional event of the ICC T20 World Cup which starts next year. Healy caught a ball dropped from a drone 80 metres above the MCG turf, the height of the top of the light towers at the famous venue, breaking the record of 62 metres set by Englishman Kristan Baumgartner in 2016.
