The duo of Penna and McGrath pulled off a stunning catch in Women’s Big Bash League
Amanda Wellington was bowling the first delivery of the 18th over to Amelia Kerr. It was a loopy full toss which Kerr tried to hit towards the mid-wicket boundary. However, she couldn’t make a decent connection and found Maddy Penna at short mid-wicket, who jumped full length and got her hands to the ball.
The ball didn’t stick to her hands and bounced off. Everyone including the commentator thought a chance was put down, but it was not to be. Tahlia McGrath was just behind Penna and she dived full length to complete, what turned out to be one of the greatest catches in the history of Women’s Big Bash League.
The video of the same was shared on the Twitter handle of Women’s Big Bash League. Eventually, Adelaide Strikers won the match by 18 runs earning two vital points. The Adelaide Strikers and Brisbane Heat are on the fourth and fifth position respectively. Both the teams have played 6 games each so far and have won 3. The Sydney Sixers Women are topping the table currently with 8 points.
