India, July 10: Harleen Deol the player of the Indian women’s cricket team displayed an outstanding effort on the field on Friday when she took a scintillating catch to dismiss England’s well-set Amy Ellen Jones and prevented her from reaching fifty. The first T20I was being played at Northampton and India lost the match.
A fantastic piece of fielding 👏
We finish our innings on 177/7

England were already 166 for 4 in the 19th over when Amy Jones, batting on 43 off 26 balls, hit India’s Shikha Pandey towards wide long-off. Displaying her athletics skills, Harleen Deol jumped across the boundary ropes, threw the ball inside, and again dived forward to complete one of the best catches ever taken in women’s cricket.
Despite this, India couldn’t secure a win in the rain-hit match over England. After England scored 177/7 in 20 overs, India could only reach 54/3 in 8.4 overs before the game had to be halted. No play could be possible after that as the DLS method had to come into place to decide the fate of the game.
India’s chase suffered a significant blow on just its second delivery as Katherine Brunt (1/11), bowled Shafali Verma for a duck.
