The cricket fraternity has witnessed batters playing different types of shots. At times, some shots are out of the world. For decades, male cricketers have been entertaining the fans by playing a wide range of shots.
Meanwhile, women cricketers are also proving a point that they have all the tools to play shots all over the park. There is literally no doubt that women’s cricket has reached a whole new level. The fact that cricket bodies are hosting Tests for women shows how women worked hard to sport this far.
Case in point, England Women invited India Women to play alone Test, 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is respectively. The first Test ended in a draw. On the other hand, England Women played with grit and determination to win the ODI series by 2-1.
However, India Women showed a lot of courage and spirit in the 50-over format. They fought well and deservedly earned a consolation win in the third ODI. India Women won the third and final ODI by 4 wickets.
Coming to the T20I series, England Women won the first game while India Women won the second game. As far as the series decider is concerned, both teams had equal chances to seal the deal. But England Women proved to be a dominant force in crunch situations.
Tammy Beaumont plays an exquisite shot
The beauty of the sport was witnessed during the third T20I. Well, what really drew the attention of the fans? Tammy Beaumont played a brilliant shot, which took everyone by surprise. Nobody really expected Tammy to play that sort of shot at that time.
During the fifth ball of the third over, Tammy played a superb shot off Radha Yadav’s bowling. The batswoman who was playing against the spin had plenty of time to play the shot. She was at least half a meter behind the line of stumps while playing the shot.
As it happened, the ball travelled towards the boundary rope. The video of the incident went viral on social media. Earlier, India Women posted 153/6 in 20 overs. Smriti Mandhana scored 70 off 51 balls including 8 fours and 2 sixes.
England Women chased down the target in 18.4 overs. Danielle Wyatt scored an unbeaten 89 off 56 balls including 12 fours and a six. She was named the player of the match.
