The Indian women cricketer seems to be enjoying her stint in the ongoing Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) in Australia. After displaying some top-class fielding in the previous game, Shafali Verma returned with a gritty half-century to take home the player of the match award. However, this time around, even Shafali’s exploits with the bat fell short of Radha Yadav’s unrealistic catch in the point area. Representing the Sydney Sixers Women against Hobart Hurricanes Women in Game 4 of the competition, Radha Yadav timed her jump to perfection as she took a one-handed catch to dismiss batsman Mignon du Preez. Radha’s impeccable effort was appreciated by her comrades as they ran towards the Indian.
Apart from the jaw-dropping effort on the field, Radha Yadav also contributed with the ball. He took two wickets for 31 runs in his four overs. Hobart batsmen Richa Ghosh and Sasha Moloney came under Yadav’s grip as the Indian finished on a high.
Big contributions from Shafali and Radha Yadav helped Sydney Sixers women register a five-wicket win in Hobart.
Hobart Women were limited to 125/9 in their 20 overs. In reply, Sixers Women chased down the target with five wickets and three balls to spare.
Ellyse Perry scored 27 runs and also took two wickets to put up a stellar all-round performance to lead the Sydney Sixers. Shafali hit six fours in her innings of 57 runs in 50 balls.
Richa Ghosh scored 46 runs for the opposition
