In the ongoing Women’s Big Bash League 2018-19 (WBBL) season Sydney Thunder went on to win the twelfth game of this edition against Brisbane Heat Women which eventually saw Harmanpreet Kaur completing a sensational catch to remove Grace Harris.
However, the ace Indian cricketer Harmanpreet has been in some exciting form throughout the series. She entertained the spectators with her batting as well as fielding and with bowling to some extent.
Earlier on the day, Thunder Women’s team skipper Alex Blackwell had won the toss and opted to bat first. The opening pair straight away played some aggressive form of cricket to amass 89 runs at the end of the tenth over.
Moreover, Heat’s bowler Sammy-Jo Johnson succeeded in picking up the first wicket as she removed Rachael Haynes,who scored 36. Later, Harmanpreet slammed a brilliant half-century in the middle to post a score of 192 at the end of 20 overs.
The right-handed batswoman had smashed six boundaries and three sixes during her stay at the crease. She also registered a 53-run partnership with skipper Blackwell and eventually got out at 56 runs off 26 deliveries.
For Brisbane, Johnson was the pick of the bowlers who bagged two wickets while conceding 30 runs from her quota of four overs.
While chasing down the target, Brisbane openers couldn’t give a solid start as they lost their first wicket in the very first over. However, Grace played a fine knock to keep her team in the hunt.
However, Brisbane team kept on losing wickets at regular interval. Stafanie Taylor and Maisy Gibson rattled their middle order.
Moreover, when Grace was batting at 54, Maisy bowled a short delivery, and Harmanpreet took a sharp catch in the deep.
To be precise, Harmanpreet came running from the long on and dived forward to grab the catch. Her teammates were ecstatic to witness the brilliant effort from the cricketer.
