Harleen Deol catch: The Indian player completed a praiseworthy fielding effort on the boundary to dismiss a well-set batter.

During the first T20I of the ongoing India Women’s tour of England in Northampton, India batter Harleen Deol put on display a stunning fielding effort to dismiss England wicket-keeper batter Amy Jones.

It all happened on the penultimate delivery of the penultimate over when Jones wanted to take charge against India pacer Shikha Pandey. With Jones hitting a fuller delivery down the ground, there was always going to be a difficult catching opportunity for Deol but the 23-year old player made it a point to not let the chance go down.

Judging the catch to perfection in the first place, Deol grabbed the ball just as momentum was carrying her beyond the boundary. Quick enough to realize the same, Deol lobbed the ball in the air before regaining her momentum and jumping again to complete an unbelievable catch.

After India Women captain Harmanpreet Kaur won the toss and chose to field, a 78-run partnership for the fourth wicket between Nat Sciver (55) and Amy Jones (43) had played a crucial role in the hosts posting a dominating 177/7 in 20 overs.

For India, Pandey was the pick of the bowlers with bowling figures of 4-0-22-3. Apart from Pandey, Poonam Yadav and Radha Yadav also picked a wicket each at the County Ground.

Cut-short by rain to never resume again, India scoring 54/3 in 8.4 overs before the interruption meant that they were 18 runs behind the D/L Method target.
