The thoughts of Australia’s cricket community are with ex-Test player Michelle Goszko, who is in a Sydney hospital after suffering a stroke.
Former teammate Lisa Sthalekar revealed the 44-year-old’s condition during Channel 7’s broadcast of the WBBL match between the Brisbane Heat and Sydney Sixers on Saturday.
“A big shout-out to Michelle Goszko,” Sthalekar said.
“She is in ICU. She is talking a little bit and she’s improving slowly.
“The cricket community is certainly behind you Gozzy.”
Shortly before the Heat began the second innings of the match, current Test star Alyssa Healy also sent her regards to Goszko and her family.
A right-handed batter and occasional right-arm medium pace bowler, Goszko played four Tests for Australia between 2001 and 2006.
Her career included a double-century on debut against England at Shenley Park, equalling the world record for the highest individual Test score.
She also made 34 one-day international appearances and featured in one T20I.
