Australia women’s cricket team is currently on a tour of England. In this tour, 1 Test, 3 ODIs and 3 International T20 matches will be played between England Women vs Australia Women. Test and T20 series have been completed in this. Also, the first match of the ODI series was played on Wednesday (July 12) at the County Ground, Bristol. England won this match by 2 wickets. Along with this, the catch taken by England women’s player Sophie Ecclestone is currently attracting everyone’s attention on social media.
In this match, Australia women’s team won the toss and decided to bat. This decision was completely wrong by the England players. Australia scored 263 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in the allotted 50 overs when they batted first. This time during the 13th over of Australia’s innings, Sophie Ecclestone took a brilliant catch.
Australia’s star batsman Ellyse Perry and Phoebe Litchfield were batting in this over. This time the strike was with Litchfield. Also, Nat Cyver-Brunt was bowling for England. On the very first ball of Nat’s over, Litchfield hit the ball straight towards mid-on. Sophie Ecclestone, who was fielding there, took a brilliant catch. Interestingly, she caught the catch with one hand this time. This catch is quite difficult for many players. Now the video in between is raising eyebrows.
SOPHIE ECCLESTONE, THAT IS UNREAL!!
