THE nation’s top cricketers are quietly hitting sixes in the housing market, laying out millions of dollars on investment properties.

Leading the charge is fast bowler Mitchell Starc and wife Alyssa Healy, the darling of Australian women’s cricket.

They saw their portfolio rocket by more than $5 million in 2018, buying two new properties on the northern beaches, where they also live in a $5.2 million home bought from Jennifer Hawkins and Jake Wall two years ago.
