“Natmeg” is a cricket shot where the batsman can hit a delivery, generally yorker, between his leg. England Women’s cricketer Natalie Sciver has introduced this shot in international cricket. The “Natmeg” name has come from Sciver’s first name and the football term nutmeg.

Natmeg has been proved as a useful shot. However, Sciver has also admitted that it requires some luck to hit properly.

After making her international debut in 2013, Natalie Sciver has already played five Tests, 67 ODIs and 75 T20Is. While she has scored 3500+ international runs, she has also taken 104 international wickets. She was also England’s first cricketer to claim a hat-trick in the Women’s T20I cricket.
