WATCH: As Alyssa Healy Achieves Sensational Tone, Husband Michelle Starc Rejoices From The Stands With A Heartwarming Reaction

Mitchell Starc had a heartfelt reaction from the stands as he cheered his wife Alyssa Healy on reaching a scintillating century in the final of the Women's World Cup.

It was a record-breaking outing for Australia's wicketkeeper-batsman Alyssa Healy as she smashed an incredible 170 off just 138 balls in the final of the Women's World Cup against England on Sunday.  His knock took Australia to an impressive total of 356/5 at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch.  Healy recorded the highest ever score in an ODI World Cup final (male or female), surpassing Adam Gilchrist's 149.

Healy also became the only second woman to score a century in the final of the Women's World Cup.  Her husband Mitchell Starc, widely regarded as one of the deadliest fast bowlers in international cricket, was also present during the game and had a heartwarming reaction as Healy reached his century in as many balls.

Watch how Starc reacted to the 100th run of Healy's innings:

Incidentally, Mitchell Starc is the highest wicket-taker in a single edition of the ODI World Cup (27 wickets in the 2015 World Cup) and Healy, during her innings against England, was also the highest run-scorer in a single Women's World Cup.

Healy scored 509 runs in the 2022 World Cup, becoming the first female player to cross the 500-run mark in the tournament's history.

Four days after scoring 129 in the semi-final against West Indies, wicketkeeper-batsman Healy hit 26 boundaries in his 138-ball innings in Christchurch.  The batsman shared a 100-run stand with fellow opener Rachel Haynes (68) and number three Beth Mooney (62) before being eventually stumped by Amy Jones' off-seamer Anya Shrubsole.
