Tahlia McGrath banana swing delivery: The video of South Australian all-rounder’s absolute jaffa is doing the rounds.
During the 21st match of the recently concluded Women’s National Cricket League between Western Australia and South Australia in Perth, South Australia all-rounder Tahlia McGrath put on display an excellent delivery which foxed the batswoman.
Having pitched the ball outside the off-stump of the right-hand batsman, McGrath brought it back drastically into the batswoman to eventually dismiss her.
With the ball hitting the stumps, the batswoman was left stunned for she wouldn’t have expected the delivery to swing that much.
After Western Australia captain Chloe Piparo won the toss and chose to bat, McGrath made early inroads to restrict the hosts to 35/2 in six overs. However, Piparo top-scoring for her team with 76 (112) with the help of seven fours and a six powered them to 251/9 in 50 overs.
McGrath, who shared the new ball with her captain Megan Schutt, registered bowling figures of 10-1-56-2. However, it was her captain who was the pick of the bowlers for the visitors with bowling figures of 10-0-35-3.
McGrath continued her stupendous match with a brisk half-century which saw her scoring 93 (87) with the help of 15 fours. That being said, the all-rounder’s innings wasn’t enough as a middle-order collapse saw South Australia getting bundling out for 238 in 48.2 overs.
Having registered bowling figures of 10-0-35-3, Emma King was the highest wicket-taker for the home team.
