Harleen Deol’s outstanding catch

Stationed at the long-off boundary, the 23-year-old Indian stretched full length to grasp the ball but with the momentum taking her over the boundary ropes, she showed great presence of mind to throw the ball in the air, and then jump back into the field of play to complete the catch.

Harleen was quickly mobbed by her stunned teammates while England Women opener Danielle Wyatt too couldn’t stop herself from acknowledging the Indian’s effort.

With India on 54/3 in 8.4 overs, rain put a damper on proceedings. The match never resumed and the hosts took the honors by virtue of being 18 runs ahead on the DLS method.

The second match of the series is scheduled to be held at the County Ground in Hove on Sunday.
