As the Indian fans continue to censure the move of allowing Covid-positive Tahlia McGrath to feature in the gold medal match for Australia, Alyssa Healy's latest social media post is seen as a dig at the critics.

Healy came out in support of her teammate McGrath and Cricket Australia (CA), who were at the receiving end of the stick, after the former, despite returning a positive test result for the novel virus, took part in the affair versus India.

Healy shared an image of a boat with 'Salty' written on it. With the word being connected with fans' reproval of McGrath and CA, it has now led to a great furore towards the wicketkeeper-batter.

How did it all begin?

For the unversed, McGrath, who had tested positive for Covid-19, was allowed to play in the gold medal tie of the Commonwealth Games (CWG) Women's Cricket Competition between India and Australia.

As the information became public, a big chunk of the community raised questions on the CWG committee and CA for risking the well-being of players. 

McGrath did not fare well in the match as she scored two runs off four balls and leaked 24 runs in her two-over spell.

Australia wins the gold medal 

Despite India's dominance over the better part of the fixture, Australia eked out with a nine-run victory. While Australia ended their tourney with a gold medal, India had to remain content with silver.
