Australian women’s cricketer Alyssa Healy recently took a stand for her husband and Australian pacer Mitchell Starc against a meme on Twitter. A Twitter user made a joke on Starc for choosing T20 World Cup 2020 over IPL 2020 as now the World Cup stands cancelled. However, this didn’t go well with Alyssa as the picture of Starc used in the meme is during the death of Phil Hughes.

Starc had opted out of the auction for the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League as he wanted to focus on the upcoming T20 World Cup. He hasn’t played in the IPL since 2015 due to the injuries and other personal reasons. Also, BCCI has decided to host the IPL 2020 from September 19 to November 8 as the ICC has postponed the T20 World Cup 2020 in the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Alyssa Healy defends Mitchell Starc

On Friday, a Twitter user posted the picture of Starc in which he was having an emotional moment. Along with the picture, he wrote, “When you rejected IPL to prepare for WT20 but WT20 is cancelled and IPL is happening”

The picture used by the netizen was during the death of Australian cricketer Phil Hughes. Hughes had passed away on November 27, 2014. He was felled by a bouncer during an Australian domestic game and had died after being in induced coma. It was a weak moment for all the cricket fans and cricketers across the globe. Using pictures from that tragic incident is insensitive and Alyssa stated the same to that person.

Replying to the meme, Alyssa wrote, “That’s actually the moment Phil Hughes passes away…. but sure use it for your idiotic meme.”

Understanding his mistake, the user apologized for his mistake and defended himself saying that it was just a satire and all the RCB fans love Starc.

“Sorry, but it was just a satire, we love starc and whole RCB fanbase wants him back.And yea We all Miss Phil..#Forever408,” the netizen commented.

However, Alyssa wasn’t satisfied with the explanation as she replied back, “Satire is supposed to be funny. This isn’t”
