Want to be a professional cricketer?
Perhaps, Sarah Taylor is one of the few female cricketers, who will always be remembered for her Glovework. She would certainly be in the bracket of MS Dhoni, Quinton de Kock and a few of the greatest wicket-keepers when it comes to the brilliance behind the wickets.
Time after time, the England lady is being named on the headlines for her stunning work behind the stumps. Once again, in the Ashes ODI game against Australia, she showed her brilliance by sending Ellyse Perry back to the pavilion. The stumping instantly caught all the attention, as the cricket fanatics usually don’t witness such.
It took place in the first ODI between the arch-rivals in the Ashes ODI series. It was Natalie Sciver, who got the bowl in the 18th over of the innings to execute for England against Ellyse Perry.
Sciver lost her radar and bowled it down the leg, which would have been called as a ”Wide”. But, in between, the batswoman Perry, who tried to play a glance, or, maybe, Flick, lost her control and came a step forward, which was enough for Sarah Taylor to pull out a stunner.
In a flash, she took the bails off and the Australian women got no answers rather than walking back to the pavilion. However, it was the Australian team, who had the last laugh, as they sealed the game with 2 wickets.
Despite losing three wickets for 67 runs while chasing 177, Allyse Healy and Beth Mooney down the order held their nerve to give a scintillating victory for Australia by a difference of 2 wickets. Ellyse Perry, who bagged three wickets was adjudged as player of the match.
